18 Oct Irish Energy Policy – Update on Electricity Price Competitiveness
Irish Academy of Engineering (IAE) 2009
In June 2009 the Irish Academy of Engineering published a review of Ireland’s energy policy. This review was carried out in the context of the major changes taking place in Ireland’s economy and focussed especially on energy price competitiveness. In particular the review drew attention to the growing lack of competitiveness of Irish electricity prices when compared to EU averages and strongly suggested a re‐examination of government policies in light of the urgent need to restore the country’s international competitiveness.
The Academy updated its analysis based on Eurostat statistics for 2009.
