Evening webinar for Communities Taking Action on Energy
Online - Zoom
28th June 2022
Next Tuesday evening, June 28th at 8pm, there will be a short online webinar on supports for Communities to save and generate energy.
The event will feature a short presentation by Gearóid Fitzgibbon about the Sustainable Energy Communities programme, followed by discussion and Q&A. The event will be of interest to local development associations, tidy towns groups, community councils, as well as people involved with community centres, creches, GAA clubs etc.
The Sustainable Energy Communities (SEC) programme is a special initiative by the SEAI (the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland) up and running since 2016. It offers support and funding to groups interested in developing energy-related projects. Once groups register, they can get advice and support from the community energy mentor, to help scope out potential projects. They also have become a part of a network of over 600 other communities across Ireland. Community groups can get a 100% grant funded “Community Energy Plan” worth €10,000. Completing this local Energy Plan identifies viable projects and gives access to significant Capital Funding available.
Gearóid Fitzgibbon is the community energy mentor for Tipperary, under the SEC programme. This is coordinated locally by Ballyhoura Development, including Clare Local Development Company, North and East Kerry Development, who provide mentor support to communities in Limerick, Clare, Tipperary, Cork and Kerry, under the Sustainable Energy Communities Programme.
Gearóid is an experienced facilitator and community planner, and has vast experience in helping develop local energy initiatives in Ireland.
