Who Pays for Renewables? Increasing Renewable Subsidisation due to Increased Datacentre Demand in Ireland
|Title:||Who Pays for Renewables? Increasing Renewable Subsidisation due to Increased Datacentre Demand in Ireland||Authors:||Lynch, Muireann Á.; Devine, Mel T.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10972||Date:||1-Jun-2019||Online since:||2019-08-12T08:07:52Z||Abstract:||Demand from datacentres makes up a rapidly growing portion of electricity demand in Ireland. Increased demand in turn gives rise to increased renewable generation, mandated by government targets, and a corresponding increase in subsidisation levels. The current method of apportioning renewable subsidy costs may lead to consumers other than datacentres bearing this excess cost of subsidisation. This letter calculates the expected impact on these consumers.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||WERI Education Research Development Printing Publication, Ltd.||Journal:||World Journal of Applied Economics||Volume:||5||Issue:||1||Start page:||25||End page:||29||Copyright (published version):||2019 the Authors||Keywords:||Renewables; Electricity; Subsidy; Datacentres||DOI:||10.22440/wjae.5.1.2||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
