    In the ‘hood…

    Ireland is on the verge of becoming an exporter of wind energy. They’re looking at €6bn a year in export revenues within a decade.

    This sort of wind activity is going to fuel the European super-grid. Wind, solar from the Med and hydro storage in the northern mountains makes for the basics of a unified system.

    Iceland is wanting to get into the game as well….

      I have more than a passing interest in that since I’m from Ireland. Ireland and Britain are currently building a 500MW East-West interconnector to help realise that vision. Further interconnectors possibly to France look likely in the future.

        Great stuff. Must be exciting to live (or be from) there. 😀
