EV Apartment Charger Grant Support Scheme
Transport Minister Eamon Ryan has warmly welcomed a forthcoming SEAI public consultation on EV charging infrastructure for apartments and strongly urges residents and management companies to take part and make their views known.
You can watch back our webinar where we discussed details about the proposed programme and the proposed two-tiered approach to providing grant support.
Overview of Proposed Scheme
It is estimated that 80% of annual EV charging is done at a driver’s home location. Therefore, widespread availability of residential charging at all locations is a critical requirement. Firstly, support will be provided to the Owners' Management Companies (OMCs) to install the electrical network and any shared chargers. Secondly, each resident will be provided with support to install a charge point to connect to the local Apartment/Multi-Unit Development (MUD) charging network.

Draft Guidance for Energy Efficiency in Traditional Buildings
The Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage launched a public consultation on the Draft Guidance for Energy Efficiency in Traditional Buildings. This draft guidance has been developed as an action of the Climate Action Plan 2019 (Action 50d) to develop guidance for retrofitting traditional buildings.
Its purpose is to update and build upon the advice and principles included in the existing Advice Series publication ‘Energy Efficiency in Traditional Buildings’ (Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, 2010) in order to provide clear and robust advice to professional users, such as specifiers and installers, while being accessible to a wide audience.
The draft document was launched and discussed during a workshop which is now available to view. People can submit feedback to the online questionnaire by close of business on 10th September 2021.Submit your feedback
