Are solar farms the future of Irish sustainability?
Solar energy is the biggest driver of growth in the renewable energy sector, yet Ireland only has one solar farm supplying energy to the national grid. More power from the sun hits the earth in a single hour than people use in an entire year, so why are we not making better use of a resource such as solar farms?
Unfortunately, while solar farms are a great example of how technology can help us in the race against climate change, they do have some downsides.
In this free, downloadable infographic, we explore the benefits and drawbacks of solar farms, as well as the challenges of constructing them.
