The way we as people harness and use energy will be challenged in the coming years. The world is heavily dependent on depleting fossil fuel reserves and the population of the world continues to grow. In Ireland we import approximately 85% of our energy requirements through oil and natural gas.
It is estimated that there will be an additional 1 million people living in the Republic of Ireland by 2050. That equates to an increase of over 20% in terms of people – all with a demand for electricity.
