Ireland discuss new support for microgeneration tech

Ireland discuss new support for microgeneration tech: The Irish Government has opened a consultation concerning microgeneration technologies with a new support scheme.

Although there are a variety of grant schemes for the initiative of renewable energy technologies in Ireland, there is no support system for microgeneration technologies, for instance micro-solar, micro-wind, micro-hydro & micro-renewable combined heat and power (CHP) plants with a maximal electrical output of 50kW.

These microgeneration technologies could be designed to mainly service the self-utilisation demands of the property where they are set up.

The projected Microgeneration Support Scheme will permit consumers to make their own renewable electricity – such as from solar panels on their roofs – and collect a “fair price” when they sell the surplus to the grid.

The goal of the discussion, which is open through 18th February 2021, is to collect stakeholder feedback that could help to advise the delivery of the scheme.
