The Low Carbon Homes Programme is the successor to SEI's successful House of Tomorrow Programme. Its funding will support the establishment of a population of new homes around the country which will exemplify innovations that significantly reduce energy usage and associated CO2 emissions.

Specifically, it is looking for proposals for housing developments that incorporate design and technology features that lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions from energy use in a typical new home by at least 70% relative to a "reference dwelling" built to baseline Building Regulations 2005 standards.

The call for expressions of interest is open to proposals from both developers and individuals. Indicative funding is "Up to 40% of eligible expenditure, up to a maximum of 15,000 euro per unit".

The level of support on offer is dependent on a number of factors, including:

  • The level of innovation proposed.
  • The performance improvement in terms of energy and CO2 reductions achieved.

  • In certain cases, the typical floor area of the dwellings include the development.

    For more information or how to apply, please feel free to contact Cllr. Frankie Keena.
