Galway Energy Co-operative aims to be an advocate for provide clean, renewable energy and services for Galway City and the surrounding area. We commenced operation in 2018.

We are member of SEAI’s Sustainable Energy Communities (SEC) Initiative which involves a large number of similar energy Co-operatives starting up around the country being supported by SEAI.

The SEC is just one pillar of our Co-operative’s initial focus. We are also looking at several other projects for the mid and long-term.

The ethos of the Co-op is determined by a set of rules.
