Under the Energy Efficiency Obligation Scheme (EEOS), energy suppliers and distributors can offer support to make your business more energy efficient.

How does EEOS work?

Under EEOS, large energy suppliers and distributors in Ireland are required to achieve annual energy efficiency targets. These large energy suppliers are called Obligated Parties (OPs).

One of the ways that OPs can meet their annual targets is by helping support energy efficiency upgrades in businesses and public bodies across the country. Examples of eligible upgrades include improvement in insulation, heating, windows, ventilation and more.

Applying for support through EEOS

If you're looking to make your business more energy efficient, you may be able to receive financial support through EEOS. Learn more about eligible upgrades, available supports and contacting OPs.

Eligible upgrades

In principle, any energy efficiency improvement project may be eligible for support under EEOS if the following terms are achieved:

  1. An OP contributes to the achievement of the project
  2. The project results in final energy savings (as a result of an energy efficiency improvement) which are additional to what would have happened without support through EEOS

Some examples of the types of technologies which can be supported under EEOS are outlined in the table below. All of these upgrades are subject to meeting the scheme's requirements.

Eligible upgrades include:
Lighting Ventilation and air conditioning Transport
Decommissioning, maintenance, retrofit and controls. Free cooling, maintenance, optimisation of operation and general energy management. Eco-driving, fleet and energy management.
Heating Motors, drives and pumps Combined heat and power
Servicing, set point regulation, control and fabric upgrade. Replacement, VSDs and control. To meet 'own use' heat and electricity demand. (Final energy savings only)
Refrigeration Compressed air Industry processes
Temperature control, pipe insulation, relocation and replacement. Leak repair, optimisation, redesign and replacement. Steam trap inspections, facility programmes and BMS.

Please note: some projects with a short pay back period such as like-for-like lighting projects, may not satisfy the requirement for final energy savings listed above (point 2). Therefore, they would would not be eligible under EEOS.

What kind of support can OPs offer?

OP support can be technical and/or financial and should contribute to the realisation of the energy efficiency improvement project. Some examples of support include:

  • a monetary amount per kWh
  • measurement and verification services
  • project management/ coordinator services

The value of the support will be proportional to the volume of final energy savings associated with a project. This may vary between different projects and different OPs.

Contacting OPs directly

To receive support for your business energy efficiency project through EEOS, we recommended contacting all (or multiple) OPs directly. They will be able to provide more information about what kind of support is available.
