About Us

Tipperary Energy Agency Staff PhotoTipperary Energy Agency has been successfully supporting Tipperary to reduce its energy demand for 20 years. The agency has a proven ability in enabling people, communities and the public sector to become more sustainable in their energy use.

We have identified a €500 million sustainable energy opportunity for the county and will continue to work to accelerate the transition of Tipperary to a low carbon future.

We have vast experience in the areas of Community Energy, Renewable Energy, Energy Management and Energy in Buildings. We have led major housing retrofit schemes, pioneering community wind farm developments and numerous successful biomass projects. We strive to implement viable sustainable energy solutions that will reduce costs and energy use.

Tipperary County Council Solar PV 2014Our social enterprise model enables us to provide cost effective professional services at a local and national level. As a result of our work, Tipperary County Council continues to be a leading local authority in energy performance. Our efforts have resulted in pioneering projects such as Ireland’s only community operated wind farm in Templederry, Ireland’s first Ecovillage in Cloughjordan and a massive Photovoltaic project across 9 public buildings.

SuperHomes Deep Retrofit

In 2015 we piloted our SuperHomes deep retrofit project. SuperHomes is a ground breaking initiative which enables home owners to retrofit their home to BER (Building Energy Rating) A rating. By the end of 2018  over 150 homes will have undergone deep retrofit since the inception of the scheme.

In 2017, almost €6.5 million worth of energy upgrade work took place in Tipperary under the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland’s 2017 Better Energy Communities scheme.  We can help community groups, schools and SMEs access this funding. Contact us today if you have an interesting project.
