The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) has published its latest report on energy security in Ireland. The report, which was prepared by Byrne Ó Cléirigh, provides 'a comprehensive overview of the wide range of issues relevant to energy security in order to inform a better understanding of energy security and the complex interactions between it and the other pillars of energy policy'. The purpose of the report is to provide information on this important topic to the energy policy community.
It presents detailed analysis of statistical data and recent trends - for gas (fossil & renewable), oil, biofuels, electricity, bioenergy and solid fossil fuels. It also discusses key challenges and opportunities for energy security over the next decade and beyond – in the context of the latest energy demand projections, Ireland’s obligations and ambitions with respect to climate change, and other macroenvironmental factors, including technological developments and the impact of Brexit.
