Co-creating Ireland’s National Renovation Strategy

The Irish Green Building Council, in conjunction with the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE) is working to build a community of experts and stakeholders to develop the v2.0 national renovation strategy Ireland must deliver by April 2017 under the Energy Efficiency Directive.

The details of this strategy are critical to deliver a “fully decarbonised built environment that delivers a better quality of life for all”. How will we finance the long term investment strategy required for our building stock over the next 35 years? How will we reach our climate targets? All these questions will be answered by Ireland’s National Renovation Strategy V.2.


As part of this process, the IGBC and DCCAE have run a series of workshops on large scale deep renovation across Ireland in Spring 2016. The aim of these workshops was to explore all actions that could lead to large scale deep renovation in Ireland. A copy of the workshops’ key findings can be downloaded below.

The IGBC team is now reviewing these findings and designing the second phase of the process: A more advance series of workshops that should lead to a comprehensive list of recommendations being submitted to the DCCAE by February 2017.
