11.4 Kilkenny Targets

In line with the Climate Action Plan, this Renewable Energy Strategy aims to enable Kilkenny to generate a minimum of 100% of its electricity needs from renewable sources by 2030.  The 3 Counties Energy Agency (3CEA), covering the counties of Carlow, Kilkenny and Wexford, have estimated that by 2030, County Kilkenny will use 633 Gigawatt hours (Gwh) of electricity. By meeting 100% of electricity (633Gwh) through renewable sources, Kilkenny will contribute 253MW of renewable energy, or 2.09% of the Country’s 12.1 GW combined onshore and offshore renewable energy target. 

Objective:

11C            To meet 100% of electricity needs for Kilkenny from renewable sources by 2030, including Wind energy, Solar energy and bio energy and to work with agencies, including the 3CEA to proactively achieve this target.
