Over two years, the scheme provides grant relief for occupation of vacant premises with business and high order retail type uses including fashion outlets.As a result, an estimated €4 million has been invested in Limerick and close to 400 jobs have been created.Expressing disappointment that Askeaton was not included in the scheme, the Mayor pointed out that the town is home to Wyeth and Aughinish, the two biggest employers and rate payers in the region.“Without the rates from Aughinish and Wyeth, we’d be a very small council. They pay everyone’s wages. From my point of view, the town is being ignored,” Cllr Sheahan told the council executive.“We have failed Askeaton for the last 40 years. We don’t even have a proper sewerage system. If we don’t recognise the area that gives the money, we’re own whistling Dixie and wasting our time,” he said.Fine Gael councillor Stephen Keary seconded a motion by Cllr Sheahan to have Askeaton included in the business and retail incentive scheme.However, senior planner Gerry Sheeran pointed out that the scheme would become “diluted” if it was now stretched beyond the core retail area of city and town centres. He advised council members to review the scheme in six months time before going “all over the place”.Cllr Sheahan replied, “I reject that advice and I’m not budging an inch. I’m sticking to my guns.”Director of Adare-Rathkeale municipal district, Tom Gilligan, said the scheme could be reviewed in six months. Mr Gilligan also said he was not happy with Cllr Sheahan’s tone while addressing local authority staff at the meeting.“You appear to be barking at staff,” said Mr Gilligan.“If I barked, I apologise for it. I spoke in a loud voice to get my point across as it appears to be ignored,” he replied.center_img TAGSAskeatonCllr Kevin SheahanCllr Stephen KearyFianna FáilFine GaellimerickLimerick City and County CouncilMunicipal District of Adare-Rathkeale Linkedin Minister Patrick O’ Donovan announces opening of Limerick heritage site to the public for the first time Decision to enter Phase 4 of reopening Ireland deferred to August 10 Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Email Askeaton/ Ballysteen bring Easter joy to local communitylast_img read more

IRENA: Clean energy transition would pay for itself, drive post-pandemic economic recovery

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Guardian:Renewable energy could power an economic recovery from Covid-19 by spurring global GDP gains of almost $100tn (£80tn) between now and 2050, according to a report.The International Renewable Energy Agency found that accelerating investment in renewable energy could generate huge economic benefits while helping to tackle the global climate emergency.The agency’s director general, Francesco La Camera, said the global crisis ignited by the coronavirus outbreak exposed “the deep vulnerabilities of the current system” and urged governments to invest in renewable energy to kickstart economic growth and help meet climate targets.The agency’s landmark report found that accelerating investment in renewable energy would help tackle the climate crisis and would in effect pay for itself.Investing in renewable energy would deliver global GDP gains of $98tn above a business-as-usual scenario by 2050 by returning between $3 and $8 on every dollar invested. It would also quadruple the number of jobs in the sector to 42m over the next 30 years, and measurably improve global health and welfare scores, according to the report.“Governments are facing a difficult task of bringing the health emergency under control while introducing major stimulus and recovery measures,” La Camera said. “By accelerating renewables and making the energy transition an integral part of the wider recovery, governments can achieve multiple economic and social objectives in the pursuit of a resilient future that leaves nobody behind.”[Jillian Ambrose]More: Green energy could drive Covid-19 recovery with $100tn boost IRENA: Clean energy transition would pay for itself, drive post-pandemic economic recoverylast_img read more
