Congratulations to Darragh Fanning who won the Junior ‘Sustainable Energy Ireland’ category for his project examining the efficiency of converting wind energy to electrical energy. This is a very topical issue at the moment when we are looking towards renewable sources of energy as an alternative to fossil fuels to fulfil our ever increasing energy needs. Ireland is in an optimum geographical position to benefit from wind power. And its utilisation would minimise our dependance on fuel supplies from other countries and also reduce our Carbon Footprint.
