Energy Efficiency

One way to reduce your bills is to improve your energy efficiency, which aims to reduce your overall usage. Whilst this can involve making lifestyle changes, there is also financial support available in certain circumstances.


The following organisations provide information and guidance on reducing energy consumption, including how to access energy efficiency grants:


Financial support is available for lower-income households through the Affordable Warmth and Boiler Replacement schemes. Both schemes are run by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive (NIHE) alongside local councils.

Similarly, the Northern Ireland Sustainable Energy Programme (NISEP) provides financial assistance (mostly to low-income households) to carry out energy efficiency measures, such as improvements to heating systems and insulation.
