The targets that world governments have been set for 2050 through the Paris Accord and other commitments are very ambitious and technology will play a key part in achieving those objectives. In this piece, we look at some of the advances we can expect and some that may be a little longer to be deployed. What needs to happen? Long duration energy storage: Renewable energy be it wind, solar or another source is unreliable due to the variable supply so it is essential that excess energy can […]

How to offset the increase in energy prices in Ireland

Even before Russia invaded Ukraine (February 28th, 2022) energy prices were on the rise in Ireland and uncertainty about the energy market has been with us since mid-2021.

To counter these upward price movements, Minister Eamon Ryan has said that the Irish government has a a plan to alleviate the increases starting with a credit. He […]

How to use the power of the sun to charge your electric vehicle (EV).

We know that electric vehicles (EVs) are environmentally friendly because pure electric vehicles produce no exhaust emissions that harm the atmosphere. However, to charge your EV, the electricity must be generated from somewhere and as recently as 2019, 87% of Irelands power generated from the national grid was from Fossil fuels. This means that ultimately, charging your EV was depending on Fossil Fuel consumption in some way. An alternative solution is to charge your EV from the power generated from your own Solar Panels. This is achievable, (even in Ireland!) and it is both environmentally friendly and cost efficient. How […]
