I have fond memories of my year in Ireland when I was studying for my Bachelor of Arts at the Dublin Institute of Technology. This is why I am particularly happy to note that the country has ambitious renewable energies goals for 2020.
Ireland is indeed willing to have 40 percent of its electricity coming from renewable energy sources by 2020 compared to only around 13 percent today. As you can imagine, this will require a lot of commitment.
This may be feasible as the country has for obvious reasons one of the best potentials in wind and ocean energy in the continent.
