The Irish Government aims to reduce emissions by 25% in the agriculture sector

Dublin: Government measures to reduce carbon emissions are reaching all areas of Ireland. This follows the government’s decision to cap greenhouse emissions in each sector of the Irish economy by the end of 2030.

According to this, 25% of emissions will be done in agriculture sector. To address this effectively, the government has announced special financial incentives for farmers in the 2023 budget.

Sectoral emission ceilings have been set for the power, transport, buildings, and industrial sectors. Emissions are set at 75% for electricity, 50% for transportation, 45% for commercial and public buildings, 40% for residential buildings, 35% for industry, and 50% for others (gas, petroleum refining, and waste).

The government also has a plan to increase traditional energy production, including solar. Solar generation is expected to more than double (5,500 MW). Offshore wind (5,000 to 7,000 MW) and green hydrogen (2,000 MW) will also boost output. In addition, the government is providing additional resources to expand agroforestry and anaerobic digestion.
