The Irish Department of the Environment, Climate and Communication (DCCAE) is looking to launch a support scheme for microgeneration technologies, such as solar PV. Currently, there is no support scheme for these technologies – defined as those with a maximum electrical output of 50kW and designed primarily for self-consumption at a property. These technologies include micro-solar PV, micro-hydro, micro-wind and micro-renewable CHP. Whilst there are a number of grants schemes available to support the deployment of renewables, such as the Domestic Solar PV and Better Energy Communities schemes operated by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, there is nothing that specifically supports microgeneration.
