Other Renewables

WindSolar
21 wind energy research projects totaling €2 million were undertaken by Irish universities during the 2004-10 period, at UCC, UL, UCD, DkIT, GMIT, DIT, LIT and DCU. 75 solar energy research projects totaling €24 million were undertaken by Irish universities during the 2004-2010 period. Despite the relatively low priority given to solar in Ireland's energy policy, there are significant research strengths in this area.
GeothermalCCS
There was a very low level of R&D activity in geothermal energy during the 2004-2010 period. An SEAI-funded report in 2006 kicked off a revival of interest in geothermal energy, and recent SEAI supported research has indicated the potential for economically viable exploitation of deep geothermal energy at depths of 2,500m below the surface. 19 carbon capture and storage or sequestration research projects totaling €3 million were undertaken by Irish universities during the 2004-2010 period.
BioenergyEnergy Policy / Analysis / Modelling
Bioenergy is a significant area of activity with 120 research projects totaling over €30 million undertaken by Irish universities during the 2004-2010 period. This has been a significant area of energy research in Ireland, and continues to be necessary to guide and inform energy-related policy decisions.
