EU to fine Ireland for renewable energy failure

It wants to fine Ireland over €25,000 per day for its failure to impose rules which should have been in place by the end of 2010.

That means Ireland could be face penalties of over €3m for not making sure that 10% of vehicles run on renewable energy.
