the client

Energy Action Ltd

https://energyaction.ieEnergy Action Ltd is an Irish Registered Charity established in 1988, with the core objective of alleviating fuel poverty in Dublin by the provision of insulation in the homes of older people.

The aim of Energy Action’s annual Fuel Poverty Conference is to provide a forum for those working in the area of fuel poverty to share key information, experience, and perspectives in order to identify lasting solutions to the issue. The conference reviews current policy and best practices with regard to fuel poverty/energy affordability in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, the UK, and continental Europe and provided a stimulating forum for debate and discussion around these key issues as well as the exchange of valuable information.
