The article focuses on the production of electricity from renewable sources in Ireland. Ireland's government has launched the renewable energy feed-in tariff program, which is a replacement for the alternative energy requirement (AER) program. Under the AER, project developers used to bid prices to sell electricity from renewable sources to electricity supply boards for 15 years. The government has also expanded its wind power production program.
