Better Energy Efficiency for Business – Funding NOW Available!

As a leading provider of gas and electricity to 1000s of Irish retailers, Energia knows that controlling and reducing costs is vital. Identifying where your business can save energy is a good place to start.

For example, switching the lighting in your premises from conventional fluorescent lighting  to LED’s can reduce your lighting costs by up to 75%. Although the savings can be substantial and projects can literally pay for themselves, it can be a costly exercise in the short term to implement.

Get up to 30% Funding for Energy Efficiency Projects

Now, Energia have an Energy Efficiency Funding Scheme that gives businesses up to 30% of the cost of the project which makes it much easier to make that decision. The scheme is open to all businesses whether they are current  Energia customers or not.

Replacing lighting, upgrading heating systems and refrigeration, variable speed drives and air compressors are all part of the funding scheme.

In addition, Energia will also provide expertise and assistance with implementation of your project. Whether you are implementing the project yourself or you require assistance from our carefully selected group of partners, Energia can help to get your project underway with safety and quality at the core.

It’s WIN WIN for Businesses

Not only will your business benefit from the funding provided by Energia but with the additional cost savings from the reduction in energy usage means that these projects can literally pay for themselves.

It’s win win, save on the costs of implementation and save substantially on your energy bill.

The typical savings that can be achieved for each project are detailed here:

1. Lighting: Reduce your lighting costs by up to 75% by switching to LED.

2. Heating: Installing modern heating controls can save at least 25% of annual fuel costs.

3. Refrigeration: Upgrading refrigeration can bring savings of up to 30%.

4. Variable Speed Drives: Installing a variable speed drive can reduce your motor’s running costs by as much as 30%.

5. Air Compressors: Installing a variable compressor can reduce the cost of compressed air by up to 50%.

Note that projects need to have a minimum capital value of €5,000 to qualify for funding.
