The Potential for Grass Biomethane as a Biofuel

Climate Change Research Programme - CCRP Report 11, February 2013

Year: 2013

This report summarises work done by Dr. Jerry Murphy and his team in the Environmental Research Institute at University College Cork. The team has successfully modified standard technologies used to generate methane from waste and used them to generate methane from grass. The team has also undertaken analysis of the barriers to the development of this technology in Ireland.

CCRP16 - Robust Adaptation to Climate Change in the Water Sector in Ireland

Year: 2013

Adaptation is necessary to position Ireland to better cope with the impacts of climate change. This report develops a framework for supporting adaptation to climate change and a tool for assessing adaptation options.

Addressing Climate Change Challenges in Ireland

Climate Change Research Programme - CCRP Report 25, February 2013

Year: 2013

As a Party to the UNFCCC and an EU Member State, Ireland is committed to key climate-protection goals, including ensuring that the average global temperature increase is kept below 2°C. Consideration of 2050 goals is therefore essential for planning and achieving the mitigation targets established under the EU 2020 Climate and Energy Package (CEP).

Irish TIMES Energy Systems Model

Climate Change Research Programme - CCRP Report, February 2013

Year: 2013

This project draws on and contributes to the wealth of international energy-systems modelling research activity. It involved building, developing, calibrating, testing and running a (partial equilibrium) energy-systems optimisation model for Ireland – the Irish TIMES model.

The Status of Ireland's Climate, 2012

Climate Change Research Programme - CCRP Report 26, February 2013

Year: 2013

This report brings together observational information and data for over 40 climate variables and highlights changes and trends in aspects of Irish climate across the atmospheric, oceanic and terrestrial domains. The observations presented in this report contribute to the formulation of the Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) as defined by the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS).

Indoor Air Pollution and Health

Year: 2013

The objective of the Indoor Air Pollution and Health (IAPAH) research project was to quantify the levels of Indoor Air Pollution (IAP) in Irish and Scottish homes where open combustion takes place, and provide an estimate of the potential health burden due to exposure to combustion derived air pollution in the home. IAP concentrations were measured in 100 homes in Ireland and Scotland.
