Thousands of households in Ireland, predominantly located in rural areas, rely on the supply of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in bulk and cylinders to warm their homes, heat their water and cook their meals.
Apart from the residential sector, LPG and BioLPG are also an essential source of energy for a wide range of critical sectors such as hospitals, healthcare facilities, care homes, agriculture, food processing, metered distributed systems, and key manufacturing industries.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting all of us, and the LPG industry is adapting to these challenging conditions. The ILPGA is representing its members through proactive engagement with government and regulatory authorities, including the HSE and the Department of Communications, Climate Action and the Environment, to ensure the continued safe distribution and supply of LPG to Ireland’s homes and businesses.
The LPG sector is an essential service and is approved under the government’s “List of Essential service providers under new public health guidelines” published on March 28th. This means that our members can continue to distribute, supply and serve valued customers nationwide.
ILPGA members continue to strictly adhere to and implement recommendations and guidelines from the HSE and the government to ensure the health and safety of employees, suppliers and customers during this time.
We remain committed to supporting employees, customers and suppliers during this challenging time and to ensuring that vital energy services are delivered to those who need them most.
If you have any questions about how the LPG industry is adapting and responding to Covid 19, please contact Liam Doyle, ILPGA Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are an LPG customer and you have a concern or a question about Covid-19, please contact your LPG supplier for further information.
