Prior to the funding call to the new PEACEPLUS Programme opening, the SEUPB held a pre-application support workshop at The Junction, Dungannon on the afternoon of Wednesday 28 September 2022. It targeted organisations who are working in cross-border collaboration to achieve the replacement of fossil fuels by indigenous renewable energy in the heat sector, resulting in a reduced reliance on fossil fuels and enhanced energy security and delivering economic, social and environmental benefits. The SEUPB anticipates that a funding call for this Investment Area will open in Spring of 2023, with an indicative budget allocation of €20m. 

The key objective of Investment Area 5.5 is to ‘promote energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions’, resulting in ‘an increased awareness and uptake of geothermal technologies for heat production across the Programme Area... improved energy efficiency, increased fuel security and a reduction in GHG emissions.’
