Social and Behavioural Aspects to Energy Transition

Synopsis

Recently leading Irish companies have embarked on an energy transition to renewables embracing positive social benefits, cost reductions and cost certainty in the process. Support from industry leaders in Ireland can help increase the ambition shown by our administration as their inaction causes us to unnecessarily fall short of out 2020 renewable energy targets and face associated fines of hundreds of millions of euros. Industry can help lead Ireland to a brighter and cleaner future where we no longer import up to 85% of our energy needs despite being surrounded by a resource that could move us towards energy independence.
