There are several grants available in Ireland for energy upgrades. AEI is registered with all of them. Sometimes grants are suitable for energy upgrades and we will help you access them.

Commercial Grants and Subsidies

In Ireland, there are grants available for certain technologies and businesses. They range from 30-50% in some cases but they do come with limits, boundaries and additional paperwork. We will assess each project on its merits and we can advise if the grant will be worth your time and energy. If your project is suitable for a grant, we need to apply to the relevant department and follow the process set out for each application. It’s worth noting that the grants do slow down projects and often increase the project costs somewhat.

Get in touch and we will advise you on what we feel is right for your business. The grants are available for all businesses to apply to, But it’s worth knowing that the grant window might only be open for 2 months of the year. Once the window closes, you might be waiting for 6 months for an answer. There is a chance that you won’t get approved and the time spent could be in vain. In 2017, 100% of our grant applications were approved and paid. In 2019 only 30% of our applicants were approved for 30% grants with the remainder being approved for between 0-9% grant aid.

What are the negatives of doing a grant application?

You generally only get a 2-month window each year to apply. If you submit during the window, you could have 6 months to wait for an answer. Project costs are driven up by several factors that we will explain to you on a case by case basis. You might not get grant approval and you will have lost 6-12 months. You may be approved, but at a lower rate than you anticipated.
