Triple E Register: choose approved energy efficient products

Have you ever wondered which products you should be choosing to ensure your project is using the very latest in energy efficient technologies?

Energy efficient product selection made easy

The Triple E Register is a searchable, continuously updated listing that takes the uncertainty out of product selection, and makes it easy to pick products that are within the top 10-15% in their class in terms of energy efficiency. Administered by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, this register is constantly updated as new energy efficiency technologies emerge, so you can stay up to date with the latest developments, and ensure the products you choose make your project eligible for selected energy efficiency incentives.

Searching the Triple E Register

You’ll find plenty of products featured on the Triple E register stocked at your local Kellihers & CT Electric branch, including lighting solutions from LUG (Click here for full LUG listing), Kellihers own brand LED Panels and Downlights, plus products from Disano (Click here for full Disano listing). Click on these links to find the LIG number as this is critical when you need to claim the ACA (Accelerated Capital Allowance).

You can access the Triple E Register online search facility here on the SEAI website.
