How are we doing?

To help improve how we communicate the activities of Dingle Hub, we are looking for your views in a very short survey. Check it out here or on our social media. We want as many responses as possible, even if you have never stepped into the Hub!

To thank you for participating in our short survey, you will be entered into a raffle to win one of three Hot Desk packages in Dingle Hub – worth €150 each!

Cabhraigh linn chun feabhas a chur ar ár gcumarsáid le daoine faoi imeachtaí Mhol Chorca Dhuibhne. Táimid ag lorg do thuairimí í suirbhé gairid. Is féidir an ceangal chuig an tsuirbhé a aimsiú anseo nó ar ár meáin shóisialta. Fáilte roimh gach freagra fiú muna bhfuil cos leagtha agat laistigh den Mhol!

Chun ár mbuíochas a léiriú duit as páirt a ghlacadh inár suirbhé gairid, cuirfear d’ainm isteach ar chrannchur chun ceann de thrí phacáiste Deasc Sealaíochta, arbh fhiú €150 an cheann, a bhuachaint!

SEAI Retrofitting Scheme

The government has announced new supports for homeowners to undertake home energy upgrades (often called retrofits) for warmer, healthier and more comfortable homes, with lower energy bills. This will help reach the 2030 target of half a million homes being upgraded to a Building Energy Rating (BER) of B2. This is a positive step towards transitioning to a low carbon society.

Some key measures include:

  • Increased grant levels of up to 50% of the cost of a typical deep retrofit

  • Free energy upgrades for those at risk of energy poverty

  • Enhanced grant rate, equivalent to 80% of the typical cost, for attic and cavity wall insulation

  • €8 billion spend between now and 2030, creating thousands of high quality jobs

All of this will be administered by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). More info on their website www.seai.ie or Phone 01 808 2004.
