Sustainable Energy Communities Partnership Application



Sustainable Energy Communities Workshop

Date and location

19th April 2011 in the Dundalk Crowne Plaza Hotel

Thank you for registering interest in the Sustainable Energy Communities (SEC) Programme.

This workshop is offered to communities who registered their interest in becoming a SEC by the 21st March 2011.


The workshop will provide an opportunity for those involved in the design, development and implementation of the Round I SEC application process to understand the SEC Programme vision, purpose and delivery. In particular it will assist communities in completion of the Stage 1 application form. Best practice from Dundalk and the Danish island of Samsø will be presented. The workshop will allow participants  to interact with key Dundalk 2020 stakeholders and understand “integration is the innovation.”

The workshop will also provide an overview of the SEC Network. The SEC Network will be established in 2011 to continue to inform and build capacity with interested local authorities seeking to develop more sustainable energy practices in their communities. 

Who should attend

This workshop is open to local authorities who have registered an interest in SEAI’s SEC Programme, by the 21st March 2011. At minimum the local authority principal contact must attend. The role and purpose of the principal contact is outlined in the Stage 1 application guidance notes. Each community must establish a Steering Group, comprising of public and private sector representatives, and all members of the Steering Group are encouraged to attend the workshop.
