Ireland has been identified as a potential leader in renewable energy due to our abundant wind and ocean resources. Investment in this area is set to continue as Ireland attempts to meet its renewable energy targets. Economically sound decision-making is essential if potential benefits are to be maximised. Developing cost-competitive energy supplies is a prerequisite for continued economic and social progress. Meeting this requirement is becoming ever more challenging for policy-makers and businesses.
Rapid economic and demographic change, market restructuring, infrastructure deficits, import dependence, global warming and environmental commitments all add to the complexity of policy making. Meanwhile, the prospects of higher prices, increased regulation and fiscal changes are facing suppliers and consumers throughout the sector.
