    Goals / Remit

    The Irish Solar Energy Association (ISEA) was founded in May 2013. ISEA is committed to bringing attention to the value of solar energy’s contribution to Ireland’s economic and environmental future. ISEA is committed to contributing to the development of viable renewable energy policies that support the development of solar in Ireland via lobbying activities, conferences, and other forums that bring key stakeholders together to shape policy.

    Solar is a rapidly developing technology that has minimal impact on the environment with maximum benefits. Solar is forecast to become the most economically viable renewable energy source in the coming years globally.
    ISEA recognizes the potential for solar in Ireland, and will work tirelessly with our members to promote solar not only as a means for meeting Ireland’s renewable energy and electricity targets, but as a long-term sustainable and clean option with numerous benefits for Ireland economically, socially and environmentally.

    Our Mission Statement:

    Work to influence government policy on renewable energy

    Work with members to provide industry evidence to government to inform policy.

    Champion solar to investors, policy-makers and the public to educate and inform them on the benefits of solar

  • Meetings


    1 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
