Wind set-aside of 90 MW

A new renewable energy initiative with a wind set-aside of 90 MW and a budget of IR£100 million has been announced for Ireland by energy minister Emmet Stagg. Details of a forthcoming round of competitive bidding for power purchase contracts under the programme were expected to be released in December. The bulk of the capacity being proposed will come from wind power. Hydro schemes are given 3 MW and biomass/waste gets 7 MW. A pilot wave energy project is to be undertaken also. Funding to the amount of IR£6.5 million from the Department of Transport, Energy and Communications will be provided to help these projects.
