Ireland to set its first geothermal energy project

Energy Developers GT Energy and ESB International have recently created a partnership thus making Ireland to enter the geothermal energy market.

In 2010, Ireland has reached its goal of getting 15 percent of its energy from renewable resources, targeting 40 percent by 2020. According to Padraig Hanly, the managing director of GT Energy, geothermal energy might turn into the main source to be used for the Irish power grid as most of the installed generation capacity of new projects is below 5 MW. As the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland has recently indicated, wind energy continued to develop, representing two thirds of the power generation deriving from renewable sources in 2009.

Nevertheless, signs of improving global economy and OPEC+ record high supply cuts limited the loss. As a result, Brent crude decreased by 0.8% to $42.80 a barrel. Similarly, WTI futures traded 1% lower at $40.24 a barrel.
