Following a pilot scheme in 2008, the Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) began running the Home Energy Saving Scheme in March 2009. The grant scheme seeks to encourage retrofit investments by home owners to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. Fixed grants are available up to 40% of the cost. Eligible measures are insulation (cavity wall, attic, external wall, internal wall), heating controls, highly efficient boilers ( over 90% efficiency), and energy assessments. This scheme will be superseded by the National Retrofit Programme, which will be announced/properly launched later in 2011.

This scheme was superseded by the launch of Better Energy: Homes under the Better Energy brand in May 2011.
