KLP, as a LEADER company, has always valued the innovation principle, and therefore saw 3cea as a necessary presence if the cause of renewable energy and efficient energy was to be progressed. We have always valued the expertise and knowledge that successive staff and board members of the regional energy agency has provided towards the advancement of the rational use of energy in Kilkenny, Carlow, Wexford and further abroad. The 3cea team combines serious technical ability with an ability to work with a diverse set of community, business and agency stakeholders. KLP is delighted to still be involved in the energy agency to see 3cea grow and expand to where it is a national presence.”
