T he Irish Green Building Council welcomed Minister Eamon Ryan T.D’s commitment to further increasing investment in home retrofitting in the years to come. The Irish Green Building Council (IGBC) was responding to comments made by the Minister at the IGBC’s first energy renovation conference. In his speech to over 150 building professionals, Minister Ryan detailed the government’s commitment to making retrofit a cornerstone of our economic recovery and ending the stop-start nature of

grant funding that has applied to date. Pat Barry, CEO of the Irish Green Building Council said, “The IGBC has long called for certainty on energy renovation. The retrofitting industry is just finding its feet. To scale up deep energy renovation, businesses need to train staff, build new business models and guarantee long-term work for their reskilled employees. The move to a multiannual budget should assist this”. For further information about the IGBC visit: FOLLOW US ON:
