What can we do your your business?
Large business with an energy spend of greater than 200k tend to be in the best position to make substantial savings from primarily understanding their energy use better. Most Government and EU supports and technical advice is directed at the big businesses because this is where the greatest impact can be made in terms of Ireland meeting its EU emissions targets.

Watt Footprint help businesses access these grants such as: Grants from the Local Enterprise offices (LEO’s) and Enterprise Ireland (EI) to help business become more lean and this includes energy, waste and water management. SEAI have a series of grants and supports for everything from building upgrades to lighting, heating controls etc. they also have grants for the installation of solar PV to help businesses generate their own electricity.
