Written 2 weeks ago by Newsroom


A Laois TD is highlighting the potential of small scale local energy projects to create jobs in rural areas.

Sinn Féin’s Environment Spokesperson Brian Stanley says the Government is facing fines of hundreds of millions of euro for missing its EU targets, when it should be investing in renewable energy to reduce our emissions.

He claims Ireland is decades behind other countires.

Deputy Stanley says a change in approach is needed.
