Mission and Vision
Our mission is to lead the delivery of sustainable energy solutions in Tipperary and beyond, by advocating, educating and innovating on climate action.
Our vision is that all communities, businesses and citizens participate in the energy transition and achieve carbon neutrality
As a not-for-profit we do not sell customers services that they do not need. We are focussed on the common good and our customers are always first.
We value our independence. We provide all our clients with impartial advice, ensuring the best possible sustainable energy outcomes.
We value our expertise and the combined experience of our team. Our achievements include retrofitting over 1500 homes and 100 non-residential buildings, and working with several large public sector organisations to achieve their climate action and national energy reduction targets.
As an agency of firsts, we are committed to innovation. We piloted the first domestic energy grants and deep retrofit projects. We supported Ireland’s first community renewable energy generation project, and renewably heated school. And we designed the first Near Zero Energy Building (NZEB) leisure centre in Ireland.

“We got in touch with Tipperary Energy Agency to see if they could help, we liked what we heard and the idea of them project managing the whole job for us was great as it is not our area of expertise. I would be more than happy to recommend Tipperary Energy Agency for anyone considering a similar project.”
“There is a lot of paperwork involved in applying for the grant and Tipperary Energy Agency’s knowledge and understanding of the process really took the pressure off us as and they guided us through the whole process.”
“There is a lot of administration and project management involved with any grant scheme such as this and that can be overwhelming for a voluntary committee. That is why it was so good to have the support of Tipperary Energy Agency to assist us and take on the project management. Only a phone call away.”
“The ability to have Tipperary Energy Agency project manage the whole project meant that we could conduct a project that was too big for us to project manage ourselves.”
