Chambers Ireland welcomes the proposed Small-Scale Generation Support Scheme

Chambers Ireland is very supportive of the proposal to introduce a Small-Scale Generation Support Scheme (SSG) in Ireland in 2023.

As a strong supporter of the Sustainable Development Goals, Chambers Ireland strongly advocates for the generation of renewable energy to aid the transition to a net-zero economy.

Energy security has rarely been more topical and sourcing our fuels from countries that are politically unstable imports political risks into our economy. The proposed scheme is a welcome step towards creating a resilient energy supply that can sustain economic, political, and environmental shocks.
