SEAI Community Energy Grant

The SEAI Community Energy Grant supports energy efficiency community projects through capital funding, partnerships, and technical support. The programme supports new approaches to achieving energy efficiency in Irish communities through supporting the upgrade of homes, community buildings and businesses right across Ireland to become more energy efficient and reduce costs.

The initiative aims to deliver energy savings to homeowners, communities, and private sector organisations.

All projects should be community oriented with a cross-sectoral approach.
You must show that you can sustainably finance the proposed project.

In 2021 the Community Energy programme supported:

  • 57 Community Energy porjects
  • 60 milllion in grant funding
  • 1,100 homes and community builidings upgraded.

The call for new applications for 2023 is open. See our Community grants page for more information.
