Commenting on the Ideal Home Show stand, Head of Net Zero Operations at Bord Gáis Energy Cormac Mannion said: “In Ireland today, there are over half a million homes that could greatly benefit from an energy upgrade. With so much information out there, it can be hard to know where to start. At Bord Gáis Energy, we have been serving Irish families and businesses for almost 50 years, and we are focused on providing critical advice and innovative solutions to visitors at this year’s Ideal Home Show. Our services and solutions are re-imagining how we use our energy, for example, turning your house into a smart home or protecting the future of those we care about with our sustainable solutions.

We look forward to an interactive, educational and inspiring weekend at the Ideal Home Show where our expert team will be on hand to help customers in making their homes more energy efficient and reducing their carbon footprint. Together, we're energising a greener, fairer future for everyone."
