Ireland plans to 'go green'

Ireland plans to 'go green'
Ireland has announced it plans to become a "centre of the global green energy boom", the country's prime minister has claimed.

Speaking at a sustainable energy conference, Irish prime minister Bertie Ahern said the country needs to adopt more low carbon policies and announced plans for an energy-related research programme and greater reliance on biofuels in the transport industry, among other green initiatives.

In addition, domestic measures such as household electricity meters and better insulation will be incorporated into the low carbon plans.

"We want to take a direct, interactive approach to inform future government actions so that Ireland becomes a leading low carbon economy," he said.

The prime minister added the moves were a preventative measure, as a total of 90 per cent of the country's energy comes from imported fossil fuels.

Meanwhile, the Irish Independent noted that the proposed changes may create "thousands of jobs" and lead to a potential reduction of six million tonnes of carbon dioxide.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18500764-ADNFCR
