The Long Range Energy Alternatives Planning System (LEAP) software was used to create a model of energy and climate futures for Ireland that could result from the implementation of different policy measures including business as usual, demand side management, feed-in tariffs, and electrifying parts of the transportation system. These scenarios are considered individually and in tandem with each other.

  • 1. Business as Usual Transport and Residential the two most demanding sectors
  • 1. Business as Usual • 87.7% of the demand met by oil and natural gas (2010) • Most of the fossil fuels imported  Serious problem with ENERGY SECURITY
  • 2. Demand Side Management 1. Peak Load Management 2. Efficiency Improvements
  • 2. Demand Side Management -10 % Energy Demand by 2040
  • 3. 20/20/20 and Beyond 1. REFIT 2 and REFIT 3: Feed-in Tariff: Wind, Hydro, Landfill gas and Biomass 1. TRANSPORTATION: Electric cars: 10% by 2020 Biofuel mix: 10% by 2020, 19% by 2040 3. EFFICIENCY MEASURES Efficiency: +20 % in 2020 Public Sector: -33% consumption by 2020 (from ‘00 values) 4. OFFSHORE ENERGY (envision) 1500 MW of ocean energy by 2020 4500 MW of offshore wind by 2030
  • 3. 20/20/20 and Beyond 202020 + offshore Scenario in 2040: -25% compared to BAU
  • 3. 20/20/20 and Beyond 2020 2040 BAU 202020+offshore
  • 4. GHG Mitigation • Transport scenario not reducing GHGs since no RES defined • The lower values of GHG Emissions for the 202020+offshore
