The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland supports citizens and communities in setting up Better Energy Communities. Come talk to us today and start your journey to better energy efficiency.
Home Energy UpGrade Office offers guidance to the citizens of Southern Ireland in upgrading their home. Register today to start your journey to better energy efficiency.
What are the advantages of upgrading your home?
An upgrade to your home can benefit all the residents, not just the billpayer. Carbon emissions are affecting the world we live in. Insulating your home can save energy by preventing heat loss thus reducing demand from the carbon intensive energy production industry.
Improved energy efficiency will reduce energy costs, saving the homeowner money. There are also health benefits associated with upgrading the energy efficiency of a home.
What support can the HEUGO office offer?
The Home Energy Upgrade Office establishes a physical office for face to face dialogue with our experienced implementation Champions and the local community. They can offer guidance and knowledge to the public on upgrade grants available, energy efficiency, regulations and reputable contacts.
€8 billion euro in grants available
There are many energy grants available from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland. For a whole house upgrade to individual works, the avenues to a warmer, more energy efficient home are just a click away. Register with us today to start the journey.
Register for communal benefits
A community Energy scheme can offer savings and support to homeowners within close proximity to one another. It can also save construction costs if the project is completed in tandem. Register with us today to get in contact with others in your locality.

About the Home Energy UpGrade Office
The HEUGO office is a physical office developed to increase access to information for the community and to accelerate the take-up of home energy upgrades. There is a multitude of information available to homeowners. The HEUGO gives valuable, accessible face to face dialogue between the private homeowner and the Implementation Champions (IC's) on the first step to upgrading the energy efficiency of their home.
The IC Concept
Our experienced Energy Consultants or Implementation Champions (IC) as we call them, have received training from UCC, Cork City Council and the Upstairs Training Framework. Call in today to speak to our IC's.
Upgrade Grants Available
On the 8th February 2022, the government announced an €8 billion scheme aimed at private homeowners to retrofit their homes. The scheme offers an increased return of up to 50% on the cost of energy upgrades.
Why register with us today?
Registering with the website can offer you detailed information on the grants available, upgrade options, access to local energy communities and our knowledgeable Implementation Champions.
