Energy Security: Motion.
Eamon Ryan (Minister, Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources; Dublin South, Green Party)
We are raising the funding. The only thing that would stop these developments is a switch of policy towards a "NewERA" system that does not add any value nor create any efficiency. In fact, such an approach puts us all at risk by selling the assets and by creating a bureaucratic construct that I believe will not work.
I commend the motion because it raises a crucial issue. I disagree fundamentally with the Fine Gael approach, but I commend the Deputy on raising an issue that needs to be considered by all sides of this House.
