The article discusses offshore resources for renewable energy to meet Ireland's energy requirements. Offshore renewables are cited as a long-term solution for Ireland which would address concerns regarding climate change, economics and energy demands. The presence of the Atlantic coast as a test bed reportedly gives Ireland the potential for exporting equipment internationally. Integrated Compressed Air Renewable Energy Systems (ICARES) were mentioned as a technical proposition for storage and collection of renewable energy suited to Irish issues.
