Nationwide Community Energy Ireland CLG
Nationwide Community Energy Ireland CLG (NCEI) is the representative organisation for 100% community-owned energy generation projects in Ireland. Their mission is to maximise the number of community energy projects in national power auctions. They also advocate for policies that advance and buttress community energy, allowing the development of a vibrant and thriving community-owned energy sector in the country.
Moreover, they are exploring, together with other organisations, how citizens might best enter the offshore renewable energy arena. They believe that energy communities should be front and central in the nascent offshore renewable energy sector.
NCEI was founded in 2021 by three established communities: Templederry Community Wind Farm, Claremorris Community Solar Farm, and Tuam Community Solar Farm. Since then, 30 associate members have joined the federation.
