Ceisteanna - Questions - Priority Questions: Renewable Energy Generation (25 Apr 2018) See 2 other results from this debate

Denis Naughten: Yes. Microgeneration, rooftop, SME and ground-mounted solar power will form part of the energy mix over the next decade. To be honest, though, I suspect that the heavy lifting will be done offshore. This country's potential, in particular off the coast of Deputy Dooley's constituency, is significant. We need to develop that resource. We are on the cutting edge of research in that regard...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Economic Policy (24 Apr 2018)

Mary Lou McDonald: ...climate change. The national planning framework contains only vague aspirations which give very little clarity on this matter. The plan states that there will be energy research funding into solar and biogas. These are already well established power sources worldwide. We are past the research stage; we need to use them. We need to be very specific about what energy sources will...

Seanad: Project Ireland 2040: Statements (7 Mar 2018)

Maire Devine: ...of State to flick through. I welcome reports that Bord na Móna will not proceed with the plan to build a €60 million biomass plant in the United States to develop wood chip to be burnt in Irish electricity power plants. To import biomass rather than growing it here makes no sense from an environmental or local jobs perspective. Although biomass by itself is not the solution...

Brian Stanley: ...late. I was attending another meeting that clashed with this one. I was interested in the Siemen's report. It said Ireland possesses one third of Europe's offshore wind energy. It has the wind power to do that. I heard what Mr. Brady said. I still think other European countries that do not have nearly the same potential that we have seem to have developed a viable industry. What are...

We recommend that the Government pursues solar farms. Many...
