Petition: An Energy Revolution For Irish Economic Recovery

Energise Ireland have launched a campaign for an energy revolution in Ireland as the basis for economic recovery, and are asking people to visit their website and sign a petition urging the government to implement plans to become an oil-free country and a world leader in sustainable energy.

The Irish government - like most governments - relies on deeply flawed data on global oil reserves from the International Energy Agency, leaving the Irish economy dangerously exposed to oil price spikes and supply interruptions. 90% of Ireland's energy use is imported fossil fuels - the only European countries to fare worse are Cyprus, Malta and Luxembourg.

Ireland has a clear decision. We can do nothing and continue to see billions of euro wasted leaving our economy to buy imported fossil fuels, with any increased income from Irish exports cancelled out by rising energy import costs. Or we can invest now in energy efficiency and in harnessing local energy sources, creating local green collar jobs, reducing the running costs of Irish businesses and homes, and keeping as much cash as possible circulating locally, benefiting millions of households and businesses throughout Ireland.

It's up to all of us to send the government a strong signal that an energy revolution must be the foundations of Ireland's recovery. For more information, and to sign the Energise Ireland petition, visit the Energise Ireland website, and encourage everyone you know - colleagues, friends and family - to do likewise.

Full Steam Ahead For Retrofit Plan

The Department of Energy is advancing with its plans for the creation of a national energy upgrade programme this year, in spite of industry fears that funding will be cut.

“The National Retrofit Programme has an allocation in 2011 of €69.9 million and entails the transition of the existing Warmer Homes Scheme (WHS), Home Energy Saving (HES) Scheme and Greener Homes Scheme (GHS) into the programme over the course of the year”, a departmental spokesperson told Construct Ireland. “A further €30 million has been allocated for the new energy efficiency tax relief scheme, which is intended to complement the National Retrofit Programme”.

A source within the department told Construct Ireland that while people can apply for grants or tax relief, “it's not an option that people can claim dual incentives”.

The spokesperson said that industry concerns that people are holding off on applying for retrofit grants are unfounded. “There has been no noticeable change in the number of applications since the launch of the HES scheme in 2009, with an average of 1,000 applications per week since the start of the year”, the spokesperson said.
