  • PQ: Groups under POBAL need more funding to pay increased minimum wage – Thomas Pringle TD
    or social enterprise model Companies supported by the CSP generate and use income from the services they provide to pay staff meet overhead costs and to contribute to future development The CSP provides a contribution to the wage cost on the basis that the services are not fully self financing or the cost of provision would be prohibitive on users Currently there are 398 active contracts in place with community companies at a cost of 42 million per annum The Programme directly supports 2 110 full time positions Of these positions a financial contribution of 32 000 per annum is made to support the employment of managers of which there are 312 currently Funds are also provided as a contribution to the cost of employing people in some 1 800 full time equivalent positons The Department estimates that some 2 800 people are employed across these companies with direct CSP support Another 1 100 people are employed in these companies without public funding support Additionally the companies provide some 1 500 work placements through CE the Rural Social Scheme and Tús These companies are valuable to the social fabric of the country and provide very good quality services particularly in poorer urban areas and rural villages where services are not widely available Since the CSP became operational in 2006 it has helped companies to move from a situation where the minimum wage was paid to a position today where 60 of employees are paid above this level The Department is committed to working with the remaining companies to work towards paying a reasonable wage The resurgent economy will support this move A core requirement of the Programme is that service providers generate non public revenues from their operations by the sale of goods charging fees for services delivered or fundraising Companies in contract with CSP must be not for profit social enterprise or community business in nature This does not mean that they should not aspire to make reasonable returns from their activities that allow for a good wage to be paid The CSP operates very clearly on the basis that it provides a contribution only to offset the wage costs of service provision However it is entirely a matter for each service provider to set their own wage levels The Deputies should note that some 45 of non management staff are paid the minimum wage in companies in contract to the CSP contrary to the requirements of the programme to pay the local pay rate Ten percent were paid above the proposed living wage of 11 50 per hour and the remaining 45 are paid between these ranges The development of the Programme and the companies in recent years has ensured that the majority of companies do not continue to operate with a low pay model The Department is working with Pobal to put in place arrangements that will allow companies to apply in a structured manner to access short term financial support if that is needed to deal

  • Government refuses to carry out up-to-date cost analysis of wind farming – Thomas Pringle TD
    a complex task involving the examination of many interrelated variables This work and the related findings will form the basis of a report that will be published shortly Our transition to a greater use of renewable energy in the energy mix has been analysed in a number of previous studies The All Island Grid Study published in 2008 assessed the technical feasibility and the relative costs and benefits associated with various scenarios for increased shares of electricity sourced from renewable energy in the all island power system The scenarios were informed by the resource available technological readiness of the various generation technologies and cost required per generated unit The mapping for the analysis also assessed the deployment potential based on where the resource was and an overview of environmentally designated areas This study informed the decision to move towards achieving 40 renewable electricity generation in Ireland by 2020 It concluded that based on assumptions set out in the report wind energy represented a cost effective source for electricity generation The abundant wind resource in Ireland means that each unit of installed wind generation capacity generates more units of electricity when compared with other countries and hence needs a lower rate per generated unit of electricity in order to recover the overall costs of the project The existing feed in tariff REFIT which is funded from the Public Service Obligation levy on consumer bills is a very cost effective support for onshore wind development as indicated by a report published by the Council of European Energy Regulators earlier this year This position has been underpinned by other published reports and analyses which have examined the effect of renewables on electricity prices Furthermore renewable electricity generation in Ireland in 2014 is estimated by the SEAI to have avoided 250 million worth of
