HBOS: taking a punt on Ireland

UK banking group HBOS plans to open 46 outlets in Ireland under the banner of Bank of Scotland over the next 14 months.

Nuclear power is being cited as a possible way to cut Ireland's carbon emissions, but the lack of current nuclear generation in the country may make it unfeasible, as supporting infrastructures, regulations and political issues would have to be addressed.
