Energy Communities Tipperary Cooperative CLG launched the new Energy Master Plan on 30th of March in an online meeting at 7.30pm. EcoEye’s Duncan Stewart was the guest speaker on the night along with reps from ECTC, Gearóid Fitzgibbon, SEAI Mentor for Sustainable Energy Communities and Eoghain O Horgain from Tipperary Energy Agency who compiled the report.
As a not-for-profit company, ECTC’s mission is to allow communities in Tipperary and surrounding areas, to create local employment and community benefit through reducing their carbon footprint and generating community-owned energy. Since 2012, ECTC has upgraded over 800 homes and secured over €10 million in investment for Tipperary, with funding from Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland. All presided over by a volunteer board of community directors.
