Home Energy UpGrade Office (HEUGO)

HEUGO Office

The Home Energy Upgrade Office, situated on Grand Parade just beside Bishop Lucey Park offers the public information on energy efficiency upgrades that can be achieved with the intention of reducing their carbon emissions. The office is funded by two EU projects with Cork City Council as the developer of the project. With support from the Sustainable Authority of Ireland, IERC, Tyndall National Institute and UCC, the HEUGO is open to help you on the journey to a warmer, cosier, more efficient home built for the future.


Upstairs targets the creation of energy communities. An energy community is collective action targeting energy efficiency across homes, community centres and other projects within the community. The Upstairs project is also developing an online portal to answer any questions with the staff in the office.
