Energy Efficiency Works to Local Authority Housing

From 2009 onwards, Limerick City and County Council have implemented a comprehensive annual energy efficiency and retrofitting programme for its social housing stock.  

This programme is part of a 10 year national programme for the improvement in energy efficiency of residential, commercial and public buildings, and the consequent savings in energy and CO2 emissions.  

The focus of the annual energy efficiency and retrofitting works programme aims to energy retrofit local authority housing stock, with a view to reducing household fuel bills, enhancing comfort levels, and reducing carbon emissions.
