Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
I will need to ask the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications, Deputy Eamon Ryan, to come back with a more comprehensive reply than I can give. The Government is very keen to proceed with the expansion of wind energy both onshore and offshore. It is what we need to help save our planet and to end our dependence on fossil fuels. It is also what we need to improve energy security and energy prices. If we use more electricity generated from wind energy, we will not be as dependent as we are on oil and gas, the price of which we cannot control. I know I am not giving the Deputy the answer to the question he deserves.
