Northwest Energy Communities Start-up (NECS)


Northwest Energy Communities Start-up, is funded by Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and is being carried out by ATU Sligo & Good Energies Alliance Ireland (GEAI). The project is designed to work directly with active communities that have not yet focused on energy. The project will work closely with six communities (Drumshanbo, Carrick-on-Shannon, Ballinamore, Carrigallen, Grange and Ballyshannon)to see how they use energy. Its aim is to encourage those communities to become energy citizens and play an active role in their own energy future.

If you are from one of these communities and would like to help us by filling out a short survey, please click on your community below:
