Lough Ree (Lanesborough) Power Station
Lough Ree (Lanesborough) Power Station
The current 100MW station opened in 2004 replaced an earlier station dating from the 1950s. It is fuelled by locally sourced peat which it can consume at up to 92tons per hour. Environmentally this is a controversial source of energy as it releases high CO2 emissions and is destructive to the diminishing natural peat bogs around the town. The aerial photographs of the area show huge areas of barren land.

The current peat fuelled station opened in 2004 with 100MW capacity and is the third largest peat fired station in Ireland. It replaced a previous 85MW capacity station opened in the 1950s.
