Carbon Reduction Grant


Carbon Reduction Grant from Phoenix Energy  – NEW installations only.

Action Renewables supports the Carbon Reduction Grant, in recognition of the CO2 savings which can be achieved by switching from oil or solid fuels to natural gas. This fuel transition results in an estimated 50% CO2 reduction (based on a 28% differential in carbon emissions between burning oil and natural gas and assuming up to a further 30% saving through heating system efficiencies). This grant is an opportunity for householders to switch to gas and reduce their emissions.

In addition, Action Renewables is actively involved in facilitating a pathway for renewable gas injection to decarbonise the natural gas network.

The Carbon Reduction Grant is income based (household income no greater than £65k) and will provide a grant of £400* towards the cost of connection and installation of gas to your household.

We are delighted to be partnering with Phoenix Energy on the Carbon Reduction Grant scheme.  This is a great opportunity for households to avail of a new Carbon Reduction Grant, to switch their home to natural gas. Gas delivers reduced carbon emissions compared to oil and coal, and as the gas network in N.Ireland has started to receive renewable gas, this will further reduce emissions.
