Kerry’s Sustainable Energy Community Roadmap

By 2030,the county will be capable of becoming energy self sufficient on the basis of its own renewable energy resources. Households, businesses and industry in larger towns will be supplied renewable heat via district heating systems harnessing heat from wood-fired power stations, industrial processes and large solar arrays. Rural dwellers will have switched to heat pumps and solar heating systems, supplemented with wood stoves. In terms of electricity supply, wind energy will cover up to 45% of total energy requirements of the county. Solar power will also play a significant role in the electricity mix
