Ireland has targets to meet in terms of renewable energy usage and in electricity generation.

Of all the energy used in Ireland about one third is used to produce heat. The other two thirds are used in transport and electricity generation in roughly equal measure. Ireland has targets to meet in terms of renewable energy usage and in electricity generation it is likely to reach those targets mainly through wind generated electricity. In renewable heat the target is 12% by 2020. We are currently somewhere around 2% and we have no hope of reaching our target without the introduction of some significant game changer.

Click on the BBC news link below and see what a South Dublin Company is about to do in Manchester with a deep geothermal heat resource there. It looks impressive. What is even more significant for us here in South Dublin is that this company believes that with the support and cooperation of South Dublin County Council they could demonstrate that South Dublin has a similar potential.  Have a look!!!!
