The government said a radical transformation is needed to pursue the EU’s new target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 55 by 2030.
In her first speech of the union as president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen announced a proposal to increase the 2030 target for reducing emissions to at least 55 pieces from the previous 40 piece target. In her speech yesterday (September 16th), she said the goal is ambitious, achievable and beneficial for Europe.
We can do it. We have already shown that we can do it, she said. As emissions fell by 25 pieces since 1990, our economy grew by more than 60 pieces. The difference is that we now have more technology, more expertise and more investment. And we are already moving towards a circular economy with carbon neutral production.
Minister for Communication of Climate Action and Environment Eamon Ryan, TD has now welcomed the new target.
The government welcomes the growing impetus and focus at EU level on climate action. This includes the vision set out in [European] The Green Agreement, published in December 2019, which aims to deliver zero greenhouse gas emissions at EU level by 2050, Ryan said in a statement.
By working in partnership with the EU we can achieve the radical transformation required across our economy and society to meet the challenge of climate change.
Revised in law
The previously issued program for the Government set a national commitment of an average reduction of 7 pieces per year in total greenhouse gas emissions from 2021 to 2030, which would be a 51 piece reduction over the decade.
Ryan said the Climate Action Bill (Change) is being drafted as a priority with its terms set to be published soon and that it will significantly strengthen the legal framework for governing the climate challenge in Ireland.
Earlier this week, the government approved the results of the first auction of the Renewable Energy Support Scheme (RESS). RESS is a competitive, auction-based scheme that invites renewable energy projects to bid on capacity and receive a guaranteed price for the electricity they produce for up to 16.5 years. A total of 82 projects were approved, including 160 new ground wind turbines and 1,750 hectares of solar panels, with capacities of 479MW and 796MW, respectively.
The winning bidders have a projected production of 2,237 GWh of renewable electricity, which equates to a potential saving of 671 kilotons of CO2 per year.
