The Irish Solar Energy Association believes that the development of solar powered technology in Ireland would create more jobs and save the State €300m.

General rooftop solar panels in the south east generate around 16,000 units of electricity, and from this scale the ISEA believes that establishing the use of solar power could generate 7pc of the country’s electricity.
Currently, Ireland is expected to exceeded renewable energy goals set by the EU where they have committed to generating 40pc of electricity from renewable resources. Overall, the country struggles to meet these goals to avoid fines.

Although wind energy has been successful in Ireland, it is not enough to reach the sustainability goals. The ISEA states that they are ready to develop a mechanism that supports solar energy to gain a footing in this sustainability sector
