GEAI becomes a member of the Environmental Pillar
Good Energies Alliance Ireland applied and was voted in as a member of the Environmental Pillar in August 2014. It is a remarkable achievement that such a new organisation becomes a member of the highest-ranking environmental organisation in Ireland, with statutory functions and a consultative role on national policies. GEAI is proud to engage at this level.
What does the Environmental Pillar do?
