Synopsis

Ireland is on course to miss 2020 energy and emissions targets by a significant margin; we must learn from previous mistakes to achieve more ambitious targets towards 2030 and 2050. While significant progress has been made in setting Government policies and plans, the need for real action is urgent. One feature of this action should be increased investment in sustainable infrastructure – in recent years, infrastructural investment has simply been far too low. Engineers Ireland has published recommendations for key infrastructure projects to assist the transition to a sustainable energy system, maintain competitiveness and improve health and well-being.
