They answered questions about energy saving, and welcomed citizens who were interested in getting involved with the community group, wanted to set up their own Sustainable Energy Community (SEC) or were just curious about what the group has been working on.
- On the Friday, three SECs: Cabra, Phibsboro and Stoneybatter presented their vision for a fossil fuel free future in Dublin. They also discussed the SEAI Sustainable Energy Communities (SEC) Programme and how to get involved.
