This scheme is now closed.   The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) offers support for community energy projects through grants. The Better Energy Communities (BEC) project brings together groups of buildings under the same retrofit programme, thus facilitating community-wide energy improvements more efficiently and cost effectively than might otherwise be possible.

People spend up to 90% of their lives indoors, so it is perhaps not surprising that the quality of the environment created has a significant impact on their health and well-being.

A range of breakthrough eco-building solutions which tackle the emerging problem of indoor air quality have been presented by the ECO-SEE project at the Ecobuild construction fair in London.   The solutions include novel insulation, coating and panel products which improve air quality by passively regulating humidity, capturing VOCs, and removing indoor organic pollutants through photocatalysis. External and internal wall panels have also been developed, in addition to design tools to support end users.
