I propose to take Questions Nos. 416 and 417 together.

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) administers the Better Energy Programme. I am informed by SEAI that almost 114,000 homes have received energy efficiency upgrades, including heating system upgrades, since the scheme was launched in May 2009. The number of applications for heating system measures applied for and carried out are as follows:
