Energy

Useful links related to reducing the amount of energy we use in our daily lives.

Energy is perhaps the world's greatest challenge at the moment. With grave issues like global warming and climate change at stake, we've all got to start reducing the energy that we waste and become more efficient with the energy that we use.

The policies of Wicklow County Council incorporate our responsibility to ensure that energy is used as sustainably as possible. Appendix 7 of the County Development Plan 2016-2022 deals with climate change.
