Ocean Energy Ireland is Ireland's Marine Renewable Energy Portal that has been developed by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and the Marine Institute. The portal was developed in accordance with requirements set out under the Offshore Renewable Energy Development Plan (OREDP).
The portal guides people through the supports available in Ireland for the development of the marine renewable energy sector. All information is listed under six activity areas. It provides access to marine data, maps tools, funding and information relevant to renewable energy assessment, development and management.
The portal will continue to develop over time and it is intended to become a "first stop shop" for all developers. Developers can engage with relevant support sectors in Ireland and can obtain the most relevant and up to date information
Data and information for planning and permitting of offshore renewable energy developments in Irish waters.
As part of the implementation of the Offshore Renewable Energy Development Plan, the Environmental Working Group was set by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment to ensure the sustainable development of Ireland's offshore renewable energy resource. The group is establishing the requirements for environmental data collection and the monitoring of potential environmental impacts arising from the development of offshore renewable energy installations.
