This provides funding for up to 30% of a project’s value in situations where a company is spending more than €5,000 on an energy efficiency venture.

All businesses can apply for the scheme, regardless of whether of they are Energia customers, while the supplier also suggests other efficiency measures, including the use of LED lighting, new heating and boiler controls and improved refrigeration systems.
