‘Ireland sleep walking’ to oil crisis

Falling energy supplies and the threat posed to Ireland by declining oil stocks should be top of the political agenda for the next general election, said NTR chief executive Jim Barry, whose company is a major player in the alternative energy sector.

Speaking at the launch of the sixth international conference on Peak Oil, to be held in UCC on September 17-18, 2007, Mr Barry said: “I believe Ireland is sleep walking its way into an energy crisis. What goes for Europe goes quadruple for Ireland. We are at the end of a 3,0000 kilometre gas pipeline from Siberia … you look out 20 years we have no sustainable sources of energy of any critical level.”
