BW Energy Report 3 on behalf of ReThink Pylons – July 2014: Response to Irish Govt’s Consultation on May 2014 Green Paper on Irish Energy Policy

Press Release July 2014

The ReThink Pylons (RTP) Response to the Irish Government’s May 2014 Green Paper on Irish Energy Policy written by the BW Energy team, Dr. Anthony White and Malcolm Brown, July 2014.
In our statement on the launch of the Green paper just back in May, we in RTP called it a ‘cynical pre-election ploy to convince voters that the Government was working to rationalise Ireland’s skewed energy policy, because this was a strategy document for a policy the government was actually halfway through implementing’! It was a 2007 policy attempting to catch up with an All Wind government policy, which was good for its time then, but is now completely wrong for Ireland at this juncture, and there are far better and cheaper alternatives readily available to the nation now.
However, in our positive Response to the Green Paper, we show clearly the major changes that have dramatically altered Ireland’s energy landscape since the 2007 Irish Energy Policy Framework, and demonstrate why Biomass and Residential Solar PV are genuine alternatives, and we would claim, far better alternatives for Ireland NOW, and we show why.
