WCCC Energy Policy 2016-2030
WCCC has adopted and is continuing to improve upon its Energy Policy and related practices. In line with, inter alia, the European Renewable Energy Directive as well as national law and policy, Ireland has legally binding targets to meet in respect of renewable energy and energy efficiency. As the technology for generating renewable energy continues to improve, so too does the need for clear planning, policy and objectives that are sufficiently robust to ensure that a consistent approach to the planning and development of renewable energy is employed at local authority level.
