Powerful Communities Conference
This year, GEAI is going to launch the POWERFUL COMMUNITIES project at a conference being held on 15th June in I.T. Sligo from 10am to 3.30pm. This conference will bring together people and organisations working on the ground in communities throughout Ireland to promote community energy projects.
The focus will be on the move away from fossil fuels to renewable energies, generating power for our homes, our heating and our transport.
National Mitigation Plan
On April 24th, our EVS Volunteer Francesca had the opportunity to visit Leinster House in Dublin and participate as observer to a meeting of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and the Environment.
The committee’s purpose was to investigate the progress made on the National Mitigation Plan implementation process. Unfortunately, Ireland is going to badly miss its 2020 EU emission reduction targets of 20% below the 2005 levels.
