How to lower energy bills and make a warmer, more comfortable and healthier home

On Sunday 16th October, the award-winning dlr Energy Team are hosting a two-part event to inspire and inform people considering home energy upgrades in County Hall, Dún Laoghaire.

Councillor Mary Hanafin, An Cathaoirleach, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council said:

At a time when energy has never been so important, this free event is offering the public an opportunity to meet Architects and energy experts under the one roof and find out how to make their homes warmer and reduce energy bills.


At the event, there will be presentations, featuring:
• ‘Information and examples of home renovations’ with Architects and Energy Experts sharing examples of energy efficient homes, in the modern dlr County Council Chamber from 11am to 12pm.
• A Conservation Architect will also highlight upgrades to traditional and protected structures type homes.
• The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) will give information about the grants available. Homes owned by private homeowners, non-corporate property owners and Approved Housing Bodies are eligible for the SEAI scheme.

Frank Curran, Chief Executive, dlr said:

In 2021, the sectors that have the highest impact on carbon emissions in Dublin are the residential and transport sector, which combined, contribute around 57% to total emissions. We all have a part to play in addressing climate change by taking actions to reduce carbon, starting at home.

This event will give attendees the opportunity to 'Meet the Expert’ from 12pm to 1.30pm, in the Assembly Room, part of the historic 19th century Town Hall area of County Hall. Attendees can meet Architects and Home Energy One-Stop-Shops, see case studies of residential projects, discuss grants with SEAI representatives and see live demonstrations of the Home Energy Saving Kit.

The event is part of the dlr Open House Dublin architecture festival programme.
