Under the Energy Efficiency Obligation Scheme (EEOS), energy suppliers and distributors can offer support to make your home more energy efficient. Learn more about how the scheme works and how you can benefit.

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.

One of the ways that Obligated Parties can meet their annual targets is by helping support energy efficiency upgrades in homes across the country.

Applying for support through EEOS

From 2023 onwards, the most common way for homeowners to benefit from EEOS is in combination with other SEAI grants.

Obligated Parties will typically work in partnership with One Stop Shops and SEAI project coordinators to offer additional financial supports on top of existing grants. These additional supports are given to encourage homeowners to invest in energy efficiency improvement projects.

Learn how you could benefit from additional supports offered through EEOS by contacting home energy coordinators for the programs listed below.

Please note that whilst Obligated Parties are required to meet annual targets under EEOS, they are free to decide how best to do so and they are under no obligation to support particular projects.

This program is a complete home energy upgrade solution for homeowners. Individual grants allow homeowners the flexibility to manage their own home energy upgrades. Community-wide energy improvements are managed by Project Coordinators, including grant applications and EEOS.

Smaller energy efficiency projects

If you're not considering a whole house upgrade, you may receive support for specific energy efficiency measures through EEOS. To learn more about how EEOS can support smaller energy efficiency projects in your home, contact Obligated Parties directly through the contact details listed below. They will be able to provide more information about what kind of support is available.

Please note: for energy upgrades to be eligible, Obligated Parties must be involved before project works begin.
