23 September 2021
Teagasc is hosting a webinar on sustainable energy and investments in the horticulture sector today, 23 September at 3pm.
Targeted at mushroom producers and other horticulture producers, Teagasc is hoping to increase knowledge of what sustainable energy options are available to them through its webinar.
The horticulture sector is diverse and energy demands vary between subsectors, making it important that the right financial support tools are in place. There are a number of important initiatives in place for businesses looking to make their energy use more sustainable.
During the event, Declan McEvoy from IFAC will discuss the financial impacts of a range of measures including accelerated allowances for capital cost write down. McEvoy is a Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) and leads IFAC’s tax team specialising in advising Agri Business clients. With over 30 years’ experience, McEvoy has lead the development of IFAC’s taxation team which is widely recognised for its specialist knowledge of tax issues in the Agri Business sector.
Ray Langton from SEAI will discuss the Support Scheme for Renewable Heat (SSRH) and how it can benefit horticulture businesses. Langton is the SSRH programme manager with SEAI. He will give an overview of the scheme, how to apply and the application process.
This is the first of three webinars that will take place in the coming weeks which are all focused on sustainable energy. Details of the follow up events will be available shortly.
