Wind energy at the heart of Government’s energy vision

The Irish Wind Energy Association, representing Ireland’s leading renewable energy industry, has warmly welcomed the proposed Programme for Government.

Dr David Connolly, CEO of IWEA, said: “The Programme for Government published today sets out a vision for a renewable energy system with wind energy at its heart.

“Proposals to speed up the delivery of onshore wind and new ambitions for offshore wind have the potential, if implemented, to achieve Ireland’s 2030 renewable electricity targets and set us firmly on the path to a zero-carbon power system by 2040.”
