Morning Focus, Clare FM: Biomass Energy – Dr Anthony White, 27 July 2015

Morning Focus An energy expert has said hundreds of jobs at Moneypoint Power Station in West Clare could be protected if it was to be converted from coal to biomass. The Moneypoint station is due to close by 2025, but Dr. Anthony White of BW Energy thinks it can be used to help Ireland achieve its renewable energy targets. He’s argued that such an approach would save billions, when compared with building the 200 wind farms that he says Ireland needs to construct. Dr. White also says this would be good for employment here – He spoke to Marian Egan on Morning Focus with Marian Egan.
