Consultation survey on energy efficiency for business
The SFA have been asked by the Department of Communications, Climate Action & Environment (DCCAE) to bring this survey on energy efficiency to the attention of our members. 

The focus is on the multiple benefits of energy efficiency for businesses and how you can be supported to achieve these. By improving energy efficiency a business can reduce its energy spend, improve competitiveness and resilience and improve their green credentials. There are different types of support available as outlined in the survey.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. The Department believe participation in the survey should be advantageous and would encourage as many as possible to participate in the survey, for two reasons:
  • It identifies many of the benefits of energy efficiency for business and some supports currently available to you to become more energy efficient;
  • It is an opportunity to have your voice heard on how business could be better supported to improve their energy efficiency. 

Your replies to the survey questions go directly to DCCAE and will not be seen by others – your contact details have not been shared with DCCAE. You have the option to complete the survey anonymously if you wish. Respondents who are interested in any of the support options are asked to give contact details to facilitate follow up.  

The consultation will be open for responses until  5:00pm on 25 October. To access the survey click here.

If you have questions about the survey contact Tomás Murray ( / 01 678 2184) or Maurice Healy (
