Grant Application Process

Energy Lads is equipped with the knowledge and expertise to guide you through the SEAI grant application process. We’ll help you decide if a One Stop Shop
(OSS) or individual grants are best suited for your home’s unique needs.

1 Book your technical assessment with Energy Lads.

2 We perform your assessment and generate a detailed report, tailoring recommended upgrades to your specifications.

3 Once you’re happy with your recommended upgrades, we can appoint a OSS or trusted contractors for individual upgrades—we can even project manage your works, too!

4 Energy upgrade works are carried out by SEAI approved contractors.

5 We conduct a post-works BER assessment.

6 Your grant process comes to a close. If you’ve gone through a OSS who have fronted the money for your upgrades, you’ll be asked to pay the difference between the grant amount and total cost of works. If you’ve fronted the money yourself at the beginning of this process, you’ll receive the grant remittance yourself.

7 Enjoy near zero energy bills and a lower carbon footprint as part of making your home more sustainable.

Individual Energy Upgrade Grants

Individual energy upgrades can be managed by the homeowner, allowing them to take a step-by-step approach suited to their budget and timeline. Energy Lads can project manage your upgrades, too! The table below shows all grants and amounts available as part of individual energy upgrades.

The One Stop Shop (OSS)

Vacancy and Dereliction Grants

If your property qualifies and vacant and/or derelict, there’s grants for that too! The Vacant Property Refurbishment Grant is funded by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage and can be combined with SEAI grants. You can get a grant of up to €50,000 to renovate a vacant property and up to €70,000 if the property is derelict.
