Commission funds France-Ireland power link that bypasses UK

Support schemes

In Ireland, electricity from renewable sources was mainly promoted through a feed-in-tariff scheme (REFIT) that operated as a floor price. As of January 2016, there is no support scheme available for renewable energies, pending the introduction of a new support scheme, which is expected to be introduced in 2017-2018. The public consultation on the new scheme is about to be opened.
