Ireland’s Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications have published a new consultation on the design of Ireland’s Energy Efficiency Obligation Scheme (EEOS) and its role in achieving Ireland’s 2030 targets under the European Union’s Energy Efficiency Directive. ECA undertook policy and economic modelling and analysis to support the development of the consultation, with findings contained in a report published alongside the consultation. The EEOS is a key element of Ireland’s policy platform for achieving decarbonisation and increasing energy efficiency, including through ambitious targets for the upgrading of the country’s residential building stock as outlined in Ireland’s Climate Action Plan.
