The Energy Team in Brussels
Date published: May 28, 2018
Energy Team representatives, Eugene and Elizabeth, travelled to Brussels last week for several meetings arranged, with thanks, by Mairead McGuinness’ office. They met with MEPs, commission directorate in energy and consumer groups. For discussion was the energy programmes we are leading in Dunleer, understand policy in this area and building relationships with different players. The meetings were very valuable and everything we are doing in Louth and beyond on education through the Energy Ambassadors Programme and retrofitting of homes, is very much aligned with EU policy. Our ground up approach of communities working with and educating other communities has been extremely well received.
See some of the people we met:
- EuroACE – Energy Efficiency in Buildings, Adrian Joyce
- Commission – DG Energy Efficiency, Timothee Noel
