June 29: Trip to the Aran Islands

After our event “Renewable Energies – Prosperous Communities” we went on an Energy Tour in Inishmore with the Aran Islands Energy Co-operative. We learnt about the foundation of the co-operative, visited  examples of PV solar, air to water heat pump and houses deeply retrofitted and we were told about the history of wind energy on the islands. The aims of the Aran Islands Co-Operative is to make the islands self-suficient in energy by 2020 and to ensure enough power to support many new businesses on the islands.
