This research will discuss Ireland's efforts to implement the EU's Renewable Energy Directive policy to meet the European Union's Renewable Energy target by 2030. This research uses a qualitative method, using the theory of energy security. Sources of data are obtained from previous research or what is often called a literature review or literature review. The results of this study state that Ireland as a member country of the EU has set a renewable energy mix target of 34.1% in 2030, while the EU has set a target of 45% in 2030. To achieve this target, Ireland is cooperating well regional or bilateral. Ireland also forms a distributed energy community in meeting renewable energy targets. In addition, there is an energy supply company to provide renewable energy for the community at an affordable price.
