The Tipperary Energy Agency (TEA) was established in March 1998 as a partnership between two Local Authorities North Tipperary County Council, and South Tipperary County Council, and the local third level learning institute, Tipperary Institute.

TEA mainly covers the County of Tipperary, which is situated in the middle of Southern Ireland and has a population of over 133,000 people.

The mission of the Agency is to ‘develop, promote and provide appropriate energy services to all sectors of Co. Tipperary and beyond with the aim of promoting, developing and implementing best practice and energy policy. In doing so it will assist in limiting green house gas emissions and contribute to sustainable development.

The agency is involved in a wide range of activities across various energy sectors but its key areas of expertise include:

  • Wood as a fuel – domestic and commercial applications.
  • Energy Management in Local Authorities.
  • Community development of renewable energy.
  • Energy Management and efficiency.
  • Education – Primary and Secondary students.
