SEAI – 4,000 jobs maintained and €35 million annual energy savings achieved

See on Scoop.itGreen & Sustainable News

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) reports a significant year of progress on the sustainable energy agenda where 4,000 jobs were maintained in the construction and energy service industries and €35 million worth of energy savings achieved. In a year where SEAI disbursed over €70 million through capital support programmes, the Authority reports that every euro spent by the Government through its energy grant programmes leverages €2.50 in matched funding.    

Duane Tilden‘s insight:

“Sustainable energy is vital to Ireland’s economic recovery and job creation. Actions such as home energy upgrades and business energy cost savings are already proving how costs can be lowered and jobs created. At the same time, Ireland is exploiting its great natural resource – renewable energy – and thus dramatically reducing its imports of fossil fuels.
