Ireland’s Just Transition – A report on the perceptions of impacted communities in Ireland

ESIPP researchers Vanja Medugorac, Dr. Aparajita Banerjee and Dr. Geertje Schuitema followed the closure announcements of the Lough Ree Power Station in Lanesborough - Ballyleague, and the impacts on the peat-extraction business of Bord na Móna. The researchers visited the community and spoke to many workers and community members to gather preliminary information about these developments in the Midlands area. The aim of this research was to explore what people in the Lanesborough - Ballyleague community think about recent energy-related developments in their community. A brief report from the survey findings is available at the following link:
