HIGHLIGHTS IN IRELAND

Ireland’s energy industry will soon ad three new gas-fired power plants are to be completed in 2010, in Whitegate (445 MW), Edenderry (111 MW) and Aghada (expansion) (430 MW).

These actions are occurring as Europe is facing the consequences of the economic and financial crisis. Europe’s consumptions shrank by 5% and primary production faced a noticeable drop as well. The trade deficit was reduced by 8%, respectively due to substantial cuts in energy imports.
