For two years, the Irish Green Building Council worked in close cooperation with the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE) to build a community of experts and stakeholders to develop Ireland’s National Renovation Strategy V.2 – This must be delivered by April 2017 under the Energy Efficiency Directive.
National building renovation roadmaps provide an opportunity to develop strategies that not only reduce energy consumed by buildings but also address other issues such as climate change, fuel poverty, citizens’ health and wellbeing as well as economic growth and job creation.
Against this background, the IGBC, in conjunction with DCCAE organised a comprehensive consultation process across Ireland from April 2016 to February 2017. Close to 200 key stakeholders took part in a process which led to the launch of a final set of recommendations in February 2017.
A copy of the final set of recommendations can be downloaded below.
This drawing explains how the content of the final set of recommendations was developed.
