Economic Plan 2010 ? 2014 (Waterford County)
Green Economy is one of the core themes of the plan and the County aims to be at the forefront of the green economy by facilitating renewable energy infrastructure and promoting use of renewable energy among businesses and households throughout the County.

The County Waterford Model for Economic Growth brings together seven themes: Entrepreneurship & Innovation; Convergence; Knowledge Economy & Smart Economy; Vibrant Towns, Villages & Communities; Attract Profile Employers; Green Economy; Rural Development; and Quality of Life.

These themes are inter-linked, and implementation of the actions under each theme will impact on the others. For example, tourism in rural areas can harness their natural resources, use eCommerce to attract visitors. Here, entrepreneurship and innovation links with the smart economy/the knowledge economy, the green economy, promotion of vibrant communities and rural development to create jobs in tourism sector.
