A major Study has been published by E3G for the Renovate Europe Campaign assessing the buildings-related elements of the National Renovation Recovery Plans (NRRPs) in 18 Member States including Ireland. The aim is to understand whether NRRPs position countries to achieve longer-term targets for more and deeper renovation, and whether NRRPs have the potential to be ‘transformational’ on the path to achieving national goals set out in the Long-Term Renovation Strategies and EU goals set out in the Renovation Wave strategy. See here for more information and to download the report.
The new, improved National Retrofitting Scheme is here! This far-reaching grant programme, administered by SEAI, is designed to achieve our Climate Action Plan goal of upgrading 500,000 Irish homes to a B2 by 2030.
