Carlow-Kilkenny Energy Agency is a not for profit organisation which has helped scores of business to reduce energy spend and leverage their support of sporting, charitable organisations, community or housing groups. They also assist individual home owners to lower their energy costs and improve comfort, while also qualifying for capital grant assistance under the Better Energy Community (BEC) programme and other initiatives. Among the projects it has overseen in Carlow is Bagenalstown Swimming Pool.


Their free information event in the Writer’s Suite at Hotel Kilkenny comes as the December deadline for this year’s grants process looms. It’s also an absolute must for anyone considering retrofitting their building to improve its efficiency and value. All commercial SME buildings/processes implementing energy saving measures may be eligible.


The brief information event will include helpful information on implementing an energy efficient project to help lower running costs and improve comfort, and simultaneously boost productivity, create employment and increase competitiveness in the workplace – and potentially being eligible for support. CKEA will also provide details on how they de-risk and de-stress the process for families, groups and business by outlining the A-Z service they offer.
