Renewable Energy – The solution to Climate Change

Climate change is arguably one of the greatest environmental threats the world is facing. The impacts of disruptive change leading to catastrophic events such as storms, droughts, sea level rise and floods are already being felt across the world. While the Kyoto Protocol, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is slowly impacting on energy markets, scientists are increasingly advising policymakers that carbon emission reductions of beyond 60% are needed over the next 40-50 years. How will we achieve such a dramatic reduction in carbon emissions? Continue reading

Air/Water Heatpumps leading the way in Renewable Energy

Even cold air is full of energy and air source heat pumps use the freely available heat in the ambient air to provide efficient heating and hot water at air temperatures as low as -25ºC. Because the source of heat – the air – is abundantly available all around us, air source heat pumps have the advantage of low installation costs and minimal space requirements, while relatively mild winter temperatures in Ireland mean excellent levels of efficiency and performance are achieved throughout the year.
