Ireland



Ireland is located in Northern Europe, covering 69,797 km2 (26,949 mile2) of land surface and having a population of 4.8 Million (2017).  Ireland’s primary energy production is 23 terawatt-hours (TWh), and energy supply per capita is 32 MWh (UN data, 2017). Wind is the largest source of primary energy production, while oil is the largest source of primary energy consumption (The Shift Project, 2014). 50 species are listed as threatened (UN data, 2017).

 

As of 2016, Ireland has 5,000 kW capacity of wave energy in the planning phase (OES). Ireland is currently a member of Ocean Energy Systems, participating in Annex IV.

 

As of 2016, Ireland has 2,800 MW total installed wind power capacity, including 25 MW offshore capacity (IEA Wind, 2016). Ireland generated 6 TWh of electricity from wind in 2016 (IEA Wind). Ireland is currently a member of IEA Wind, participating in WREN.
