The South-East Regional Authority is one of eight statutory regional authorities established in Ireland in 1994.

The Regional Authority comprises 35 elected members nominated by the six constituent local authorities in the region.

The region comprises the five counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, South Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford. The region has an area of 9,406 sq. kms. which is about 13.5% of the area of the state. It has a population of 460,838 or about 10.9% of the national population.

The principal functions of the Authority include: promotion of co-ordination in the provision of public services in the region; promotion of co-operation, joint action, etc. between local authorities, public authorities and/or others; reviewing the overall development needs and investment priorities of the region; and preparation of statutory Regional Planning Guidelines.

The SERA has developed a Regional Bio-Energy Implementation Plan for the South-East Region. The plan is designed to make the South-East the leading Irish region in the use and promotion of bioenergy over the coming years.

The objectives of the plan are to provide a structured framework for all stakeholders in the Region to utilize for coherent development and progress in the area of bio-energy, to gather data in relation to the scope and potential for bio-energy development in the region based on the availability of resources and technology and to identify and reduce barriers to the development of bio-energy in the region.
