Renewables total passes one gigawatt mark

Renewable electricity capacity in Ireland has passed 1 GW and according to natural resources minister Noel Dempsey, the country is on track to meeting its target for 15% renewables by 2010. Wind at 740 MW is the dominant technology; hydro contributes 236 MW and biomass 35 MW. Renewables capacity has more than doubled in the past two years. "I am confident and more determined than ever that we can reach the 30% renewable target [by 2020] contained in the government's green paper on energy."
