Cape Clear off the coast of Cork and the Aran Islands have been selected by the European Commission for a new clean energy initiative.


The islands will develop a plan to become self-reliant by harnessing wind, solar power and sea waves.

24 other European islands inhabited by over 2,000 residents have been selected for the programme which will eventually benefit from EU funding.

Grace Bolton of the European Commission office in Ireland says the initiative will see Cape Clear and the Aran Islands dramatically reduce their energy costs.
