Breakfast tidings with Irish Parliament

Nearly 25% of the Irish Parliament -- 40 members -- attended a breakfast in Dublin at the invitation of the Irish Wind Energy Association (IWEA). Members were presented with the findings of a new study into wind penetration of the Irish electricity network. The study backs the association's claims that the grid could cope with an extra 100 MW of new wind each year up to 1100 MW in 2010, 10% of the nation's electricity. IWEA commissioned the study from Dutch Ecofys and Econnect of Britain in response to the government's adoption of targets for renewable energy (Windpower Monthly, September 1999). IWEA's Larry Staudt adds that the grid is becoming more stable by interconnection with Northern Ireland, the rest of the UK and mainland Europe.
