Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (13 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: The Taoiseach says all the right things when it comes to climate. He talks about the stark challenges and urgency. Where is the urgency when it comes to setting the sectoral targets? The longer it takes to set those targets, the more onerous it will be for us to meet them. Is his Government too afraid to deal with the issue of agriculture? Are discussions with the agriculture sector and...

Select Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Estimates for Public Services 2022
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Supplementary)
(12 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: Unfortunately, I missed the start of the meeting, because I had other business. I thank the Minister of State for coming in. I acknowledge that this is not his portfolio. It is disappointing that the Minister or the Minister of State from the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications is not here, because there are many specific questions that will need to be answered. I...

Select Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Estimates for Public Services 2022
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Supplementary)
(12 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: My understanding is that if the Government is saying that it will be 500,000 B2-equivalent homes, potentially, 700,000 or 1 million homes would give one the same emissions savings as 500,000 B2 homes. Is that correct? Am I reading that correctly? The programme for Government, however, specifically stated 500,000 homes that were at B2 level.

Select Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Estimates for Public Services 2022
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Supplementary)
(12 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: With regard to the one-stop shop and the underspend, is €40 million being reallocated from retrofitting programmes under the one-stop shop, as part of these Estimates? Is that correct?

Select Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Estimates for Public Services 2022
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Supplementary)
(12 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: How has there been an underspend on the one-stop shop? What is the reason for that?

Select Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Estimates for Public Services 2022
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Supplementary)
(12 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: My understanding is that those supply-chain issues are still problematic. Is it not the case that there will still be issues for the one-stop shops which will probably go on into 2023? Is there still a risk that those supply-chain issues will be in place and the one-stop shops will not be able to meet their targets next year, either?

Select Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Estimates for Public Services 2022
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Supplementary)
(12 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: I do not know if I had my statements correct during the debate in the Dáil when I said that there was a 450 MW additional electricity generation and that there had also previously been emergency generation of approximately 200 MW from the CRU, that had been procured. Is that correct? What was the cost of that? If this 450 MW will cost approximately €350 million, how much did...

Select Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Estimates for Public Services 2022
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Supplementary)
(12 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: I raised it in the debate and asked the Minister to follow up, but I have not received a response. The fact that we are now having this discussion on Estimates where the primary focus of it is to allocate this money and the fact that the Department is not coming in with the answers to these questions that have already been asked of the Minister in the previous debate is not acceptable. It...

(12 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: One would imagine it would be €20.

Select Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Estimates for Public Services 2022
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Supplementary)
(12 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: We are talking about approximately €60, which will completely offset the reductions in the public service obligation, PSO, figure. The 450 MW figure is just the start. The CRU has identified it could potentially be 700 MW. I can see someone shaking their head but it will be that, if the other measures are not in place as set out in its policy. If they are not implemented, we could...

Select Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Estimates for Public Services 2022
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Supplementary)
(12 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: It seems that the Government is taking with one hand and giving with the other and that people will still be left disadvantaged by a lack of planning when it comes to energy demand.

Cost of Disability: Motion [Private Members] (6 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: I also thank Deputy Cairns for bringing forward this motion and welcome all those in the Gallery and those looking in today. We have all heard the saying that a disability does not disable someone; society disables people. It is an important point to acknowledge today because it is clear that the skyrocketing cost of living everyone is seeing at the moment is making life very difficult,...
