Housing 4.0 Energy Affordable Housing Survey

The Irish H4.0E pilot, overseen by 3 Counties Energy Agency (3CEA), will be located in South East of Ireland (Carlow, Kilkenny and Wexford), with each region committing to the delivery of four zero energy homes (ZEHs) each — 12 in total. This pilot project will utilise digitisation and 4.0 technology and integrate renewable energies. The main construction principles will be prefabricated Timber Frame and Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF) with the aim to use renewable building materials and innovative technologies. Local Authority Social Housing tenants are the intended end users, with the aim of addressing fuel poverty.

The private housing sector in Ireland accounts for nearly one third of all CO2 emissions. The aim of this pilot project is to offer access to new and affordable energy efficient homes and develop a market for small, affordable and sustainable homes by adapting and applying sustainable and innovative technologies.

We have prepared an online survey to understand the current housing market and to help identify the ‘Needs and Expectations’ of potential future residents for these innovative low carbon homes. Any help in sharing the survey would be greatly appreciated and will contribute to this vital piece of study which feeds into a larger programme.

Note* This survey is anonymous but there is an option to be in with a chance to win a €100 One4All voucher. If you wish to enter the competition, leave your contact email at the end of the questionnaire.
