Sustainable Energy Communities
Welcome to the Sustainable Energy Communities Network
Here you will find information on how to develop a Sustainable Energy Community with guidance on available resources and financial assistance to optimise your community energy use and supply.
A Sustainable Energy Community (SEC) is a community committed to identifying their energy use, plan to make savings and are willing to take action and review the impacts. There is a wide variety of SEC models ranging from a small neighbourhood of homes coming together to upgrade their homes to a county wide energy community.
To support Sustainable Energy Communities, SEAI established the SEC Network programme to stimulate a national movement towards sustainable energy practice through demonstration in exemplar communities.
By joining the SEC Network you will get access to the following:
- Funding opportunities and grants
- Technology developments
- Invitations to training courses
- Project demonstration days
- Workshops and seminars
- Best practice case studies
- Networking opportunities
SEAI will launch a new Call for Applications from interested communities in the coming weeks. If you are interested in finding out more, please send an email to SEC@seai.ie and you will be included in updates on the programme.
