Ocean Energy Ireland is Ireland's Marine Renewable Energy Portal. It has been developed by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and the Marine Institute in accordance with requirements set out under the Offshore Renewable Energy Development Plan (OREDP).
The portal acts as a 'sign post' to guide people through the supports (financial and otherwise) available in Ireland for the development of the marine renewable energy sector. All information is aligned under six axes of activity which provide access to marine data, maps tools, funding and information relevant to renewable energy assessment, development and management .
The portal is an evolving tool and it is intended to become a "first stop shop" where all developers can engage with relevant support sectors in Ireland and from where they 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 up 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.
