Conflicts between Energy Policy Objectives and NCCS in Ireland:

A research project funded by the Environmental Protection Agency, through the Environmental RTDI Programme. The aim of this project is to inform the successful implementation of the National Climate Change Strategy. This will be realised by increasing knowledge and addressing key information gaps surrounding the interactions between energy policies and the NCCS measures relating to the electricity supply sector.


Study on the Economic Analysis of RE Support Mechanisms in the Electricity Generation Sector

A research project funded by  Sustainable Energy Ireland under its Renewable Energy Research, Development and Demonstration Programme. The study is co-ordinated by the Energy Economics Group in Vienna University of Technology and the other project partners are Ecofys and Distributed Energy Compnay. It provides a detailed technical, economic, financial and regulatoy analysis of the various market based renewable energy support mechanisms the may be employed to meet Irish RE targets going forward. See Final Report


Measuring and Monitoring the Sustainability of Energy Trends

A research project funded by the Higher Education Authority, under the Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions. This is one of 5 projects under the strategic research area Sustainable Energy which is itself one of 9 areas around which UCC's Environmental Research Institute will be built.
