The Energy Agency, a registered charity, was established in February 1999 as South Ayrshire Energy Agency. It began as an innovative project using a combination of European Union and Local Authority funding.
Our Management Board, which comprises 13 directors of regional and local groups, is responsible for all reporting and decision-making.
The Energy Agency mainly operates in the four local authority areas of South Ayrshire, East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire and Dumfries & Galloway. The organisation has become highly specialised at education work in schools, consultancy work, working closely with community groups and the delivery of projects to install energy efficiency and renewable energy measures across Scotland.
The Energy Agency employs 33 full-time staff and 1 Renewables Consultant who provide a dedicated service to households, communities and businesses. There is a wide range of experience and expertise in the office, allowing us to offer general advice and technical expertise, as well as project procurement and management.
