The NFLA All Ireland Sustainable Energy Forum welcomes the announcement of the Irish Renewable Electricity Support Scheme (RESS). This will finally give the solar industry the kind of support it needs and provide an essential boost to the development of renewable energy across the island of Ireland. According to Solar Power Portal, the total pipeline of projects in the Republic of Ireland has now reached nearly 6.9GW and, after many years of uncertainty and policy drift, there are approximately 1.3GW of projects eligible to participate in the first round auction. The successful projects will then be part of the first phase of ground-mounted solar construction in the Republic of Ireland.
