Brief

With alternative sources of electricity generation coming into focus, Edenderry in the Republic of Ireland originated as predominantly a peat fired condensing power station, which now uses more environmentally friendly bio-fuel, wood chip, sawdust and energy crops. The power station supplies 3% of the electricity in the Republic of Ireland, with a target of 10% green electricity production in 2010 and circa 30% renewable fuel by 2015.
