Better Energy Communities 2017
Many Energy Efficiency Measures now underway as part of SEAI’s Better Energy Communities (BEC) 2017.

BEC offers a win-win grant aid solutionĀ for community groups, public authorities, individualsĀ and businesses to both lower their energy bills while reducing energy usage. Here at CKEA we are co-ordinating 5 projects this year including one in each of Counties Kilkenny, Carlow, Laois and Wexford. These are being lead by the relevant Local Authorities and we look forward to working with them, the businesses, home owners and communities who are benefiting.

Applications are now closed. For those beneficiaries who have received a letter of offer deadlines are tight and we urge you to stay in touch with the CKEA team regarding any potential delays to the works. We are here to help where we can.

Carlow Kilkenny Energy Agency has extensive, award winning experience and expertise in supporting applicants through the BEC pipeline. Camphill Communities Ireland were awarded the prestigious SEAI Sustainable Energy Award 2016, Community Award for their BEC 2015 project for which we provided administrative support.
