In 2012, over 70% of renewables used in electricity generation came from wind turbines.
According to statistics released by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), over 70% of all renewable electricity generation in 2012 came from wind energy. This accounted for more than 8% of all primary energy fuel requirements with the remaining renewable energy for electricity generation coming from landfill gas/biofuels/waste and hydropower.
Industry accounted for the largest share of electricity consumption (38%), closely followed by the residential sector (34%) with services accounting for the bulk of the remaining demand (26%). Agriculture accounted for only 2% with transport and others consuming less than 1%.
EnergyElephant is targeting the 60% of electricity demand covered by the residential and services sectors. By allowing these entities to increase their take up of renewable electricity and lower their carbon footprint we support a stable electricity grid and reducing Ireland's multi billion euro energy importation bill.
