With 15 years of energy agency experience and an expanded geographical setting we felt it was time for a new look and new name. Carlow Kilkenny Energy Agency is to become 3CEA – Three Counties Energy Agency to reflect our ‘3 Counties’ footprint of Carlow, Kilkenny and Wexford.
Paddy Phelan, manager since 2012, explains
“We wanted a name that was inclusive of new partners from the public, private and community sectors. We are delighted with the work of Penhouse Design who developed our new identity. I am particularly happy that they found a way to incorporate our original tagline ‘driving sustainability’ as it remains at the core of our service.”
We are working on a symbolic launch of the new name and logo but meanwhile the 3CEA team look forward to supporting public bodies, businesses and communities towards smarter energy use.
3cea. Three Counties Energy Agency.

Wexford County Council takes another step along the energy efficiency road.
We had a good day out of the office yesterday as Wexford County Council and SEAI signed a Public Sector Partnership in SEAI offices in Dublin 2. This further commits WCC to energy efficiency targets by 2020 and beyond and through the partnership they receive the support of SEAI’s Public Sector Programme team. Well done all involved and especially our board member, John Carley, Director of Services WCC and our own Jane Wickham, Energy Engineer, who has been working with John and the other members of the WCC Energy Team to reach this point. CKEA welcomes Cllr Oliver Walsh to the CKEA Board.
