EXEED Grant Scheme

The 2017 EXEED Grant Scheme is now open for applications.

The key objective of the grant scheme is to incentivise and support the uptake and application of EXEED Certified projects.

The EXEED Grant Scheme will provide grant support of up to €250,000 . It will cover up to 50 % for professional services in the pre-investment stage and also up to 30 % of additional capital being expended on opportunities identified through the process and being implemented.

The grant scheme is relevant to:

  1. New design projects of any scale complexity and sector.
  2. Major energy upgrades of existing workplaces and assets. 

In addition to financial support, SEAI will provide additional mentoring, information and advice both at group and individual project levels.

Information Sessions

SEAI are hosting a number of information sessions about the EXEED Grant Scheme. If you are thinking of applying for a grant, please join us and learn more about the scheme. Registration is free.

  1. Dublin: Thursday 13 April 10am -12noon, Clayton Hotel Dublin Airport. Register here


Note the content of Dublin event will be slightly different to ones in Cork and Galway. It will be 45 minutes in duration and an open event to all attendees at the Energy Show.


Commitment to progress to EXEED Certified is a requirement for application and to be eligible for grant support.

The 2017 grant scheme will have funding constraints within the 2017 work window. It will therefore provide funding support for the extent of work that can be completed within 2017, with the commitment to progress towards EXEED Certified in the future.

It is probable for new design projects of a large scale that support will be limited to professional services employed in the energy efficient design processes during 2017.

Applications will be evaluated on the basis of quality and on suitability for EXEED Certification. Projects will be evaluated on a first come first served basis. Please read the EXEED Grant Scheme application guidelines below which contains all the information relating to the application process and the evaluation of applications. There is a two staged application process and the applications can be found below. It is encouraged to submit applications as early as possible to maximise the grant window. However applications will be accepted throughout the year, taking into consideration remaining budget and remaining grant window.
