It provides detailed information on wind speeds, electricity transmission and distribution networks for specific locations around Ireland at national and county levels.
Ireland has one of the greatest wind energy resources in Europe and it is important this is exploited to maximum advantage. The wind atlas can assist all those concerned with the wind planning process and be of great use to developers and policy makers alike. It is currently used by local authorities to help identify areas suitable for wind energy developments.
SEAI hopes to increase the usefulness of this atlas to a wider audience, helping to inform the public and educate our children about the nature and extent of Ireland’s wind energy resources.
