Protest planned over energy projects  

Credit:  The Kerryman | July 13 2019 | www.independent.ie ~~

A major protest is to take place outside county buildings on Monday next as groups from across Kerry protest a range of renewable energy projects they fear are impacting, or will impact, their home places negatively.

The protest will take place outside the council building in Tralee as the monthly meeting of the Authority gets underway inside.

The protest is being organised by a variety of groups from North to South Kerry over a range of concerns relating to wind farms, solar farm and batter storage facilities.

Chief among the concerns to be voiced at the forthcoming protest are fears over the potential hazards associated with the fledgling battery storage technology, in particular from a fire safety point of view, and whether or not the authorities would be capable to handling an emergency surrounding the tech.

The groups are also to protest Kerry County Council’s approval of planning for battery storage facilities; the likely expansion of the renewable wind energy sector under the new Climate action plan; as well as the Landscape Character Assessment, which finds much of North Kerry to be of no scenic or tourism value. The protest is to take place between 9.30am and 11am on Monday, July 15.
