foe-email-footer

The general election has been called for February 8th. We have three weeks to get everyone across Ireland talking to their local candidates about climate. And we need you to give and do what you can.

We need Faster and Fairer Climate Action

Much Faster: We need to be cutting our climate-polluting emissions by at least 8% a year, not 2% as planned, to make sure we achieve the Paris Agreement

Much Fairer: We need a substantial increase in government investment in public transport, warmer homes and community energy to make zero carbon options available for everyone.

Want more talking points? We've created this list to give you some pointers on what to ask your local candidates.

Renewable Electricity Public Consultation (RESS)

Issued in the blog on January 15, 2020 at 07:00:00.

The Government is consulting with the public on the next renewable electricity support scheme - The Renewable Electricity Support Scheme (RESS). Ireland can meet only about 30% of its electricity needs from renewables, so we really really need a new support scheme to allow more renewable electricity projects to get built. This scheme would support 3,330 GWhrs of renewable electricity onto the Irish market from onshore wind, solar, hydro, waste to energy, biomass CHP and biogas CHP.

The details of the scheme can be found here, and submissions are requested by email to ress@dccae.gov.ie by 5pm, 17th February.

Every €1 you donate will turn into €4 when it comes to us through Patagonia's Match Giving until December 31st!

We want to turn your quadrupled euros into clean, renewable energy, generated right from the roof of schools all over Ireland.

Quadruple

Our Solar Schools project is putting solar panels on schools, to show that energy can and should be community powered. This is an exciting project, but it's only allowing us to do so much. Your donations matched by Patagonia mean we can go bigger and better to unlock renewables in Ireland.

This is an opportunity too good to miss. We can run Ireland on renewables, but we need this boost.
