Mission and Vision
We translate zero-carbon ambitions into practical actions with measurable results.
Our vision is that all communities, organisations, and citizens participate in the energy transition and achieve carbon neutrality.
Our focus is on the common good. We provide impartial support to ensure the best possible sustainable energy outcomes. We embrace and include diverse perspectives. We respect our communities and our people.
We are committed to sustainable energy engineering excellence, which will positively impact on communities, organisations and society for generations.
We develop our people and their skills so that their work makes a difference. We have a continuous learning culture. Our partners value the expertise and vision that our people bring to every project.
We take calculated risks to increase impact. We are continuously trying to improve what we do, how we do it. We collaborate with our partners in the creation and innovative delivery of energy projects designed to accelerate their vision.

“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.”
Board of Directors
Our directors are responsible for the governance of the organisation and are not paid for their role as directors. Our success is the result of the collaboration, experience and direction of the current and previous boards of directors who are representatives of our member organisations, and those with expertise in a particular subject.

A social enterprise is an organisation whose mission is focussed on the social good rather than on profit. We invest our surpluses in our communities, innovation in the sustainable energy sector and advocating for policy that supports sustainable energy.
Over the past number of years our advocacy work has focussed on removing barriers to community energy production and the retrofitting of buildings.
Tipperary Energy Agency is regularly called on to advise on energy policy. Our representatives have appeared in front of the Dáil Committees on Climate Action and Housing, and made significant contributions to many international fora and events.
We have organised several climate and energy tours for public representatives and policy makers to demonstrate first hand how our work has driven the energy transition in Tipperary.
