The local authority was shortlisted as a finalist from 130 entries.


Louth County Council led a consortium of diverse clients across all communities, including sport facilities, community groups, church organisations and public sector organisations, to deliver energy saving measures. The project resulted in significant energy savings for all the participating organisations across the county.
