The Limerick Clare Energy Agency (LCEA) was established with investment from Limerick and Clare
Local Authorities. The agency is also fortunate to receive sponsorship and support from Local
Development Companies in Limerick and Clare. The University of Limerick provides office
accommodation on campus at the Foundation Building.

operation and development. The agency will have a wide remit, to provide energy services to all
economic sectors in the region.

any external assistance.
