In a move aimed at tackling climate change, the Government is investing in new nuclear power plants to supply the electricity for the country’s nuclear power stations.
The move comes after the announcement last week of plans to increase renewable energy capacity to 10 gigawatts (GW) by 2030, up from the current 1.6GW.
The Government says it will spend £7.5bn on renewable energy by 2030 and is also proposing to set up a pilot scheme to introduce the first pilot site of a small dairy farm in the Republic of Ireland.
This follows a report from the Institute for Sustainable Development (ISD) which found the majority of farmers in Ireland do not buy the beef from their own farms.
