The Ballyfermot Residential Energy and Fuel Poverty Report - Dwelling Report


In March 2003, Dublin 10 and 20 MABS invited Energy Action and many of these organisations to work in a co-ordinated way to address the issue of fuel poverty in Ballyfermot. This report sets out the findings arising from the assessment of the energy performance
characteristics in some dwellings in this area, and assesses the impact of various energy efficiency and heating improvement options for the dwellings surveyed. It concludes that there is certainly effective scope to initiate an insulation programme in Ballyfermot. The overall impact of the heating and insulation improvements assessed here, if installed in their entirety, would have a significant impact on the energy performance of the dwellings in Ballyfermot.
