Goodbody and Eirgrid clash over green energy tax exemptions for Reits

  • A proposal from Goodbody Stockbrokers to exempt investment in land earmarked for green energy from some taxes could clash with the national grid operator’s efforts to control where such projects are located, sources say.
  • The national grid operator’s approach favours large-scale renewable projects set close to areas where demand is high, such as Dublin, Cork and other cities.
  • The suggestion from Mr Gill, Goodbody’s green economy advocate, noted that the Reit legislation stimulated investment in the Republic’s ailing property market during the recession.
