    mainly relies on fossil fuels for its energy production. This has allowed for heavy release of carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide and other harmful greenhouse gases. The current population, in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, according to the 2011 census is an estimated 6.4 million. The actual number over the past few years will have increased dramatically and so has the need for an efficient energy source. The main issue with Ireland’s overall energy production is that majority…
