This year, GEAI is going to launch the POWERFUL COMMUNITIES project at a conference being held on 15th June in I.T. Sligo from 10am to 3.30pm. This conference will bring together people and organisations working on the ground in communities throughout Ireland to promote community energy projects. The focus will be on the move away from fossil fuels to renewable energies, generating power for our homes, our heating and our transport. All while cutting the costs of our energy bills and improving our health and the comfort of our homes!

GEAI, in partnership with I.T. Sligo, has done energy surveys and seminars in six communities in the Northwest as part of the NECS project. The results of these surveys will be presented by Mel Gavin, mentor for the SEAI community programmes. Speakers also include Paul Kenny from the Tipperary Energy Agency and Ruth Buggie, SEAI, who will give details of community support schemes, including new grants for renewable energies installations, e.g. heat pumps and biomass boilers.

The event is FREE and lunch is included.
