Energy Planning

RDD 65. Clonburris Energy MasterplanRDD 82. Advancing Spatial Energy Demand Analysis for Public Sector Energy Planning - CODEMA

The project is at the first stage of development and aims to develop a low carbon energy solution 'Energy Masterplan' for Clonburris in Dublin, offering the potential to support cost-competitive low carbon heat and electricity alternatives that can be mirrored by other Councils around Ireland.

This research will build on the current spatial planning tools and strategies, in particular County Development Plan energy policies, and will further support evidence-based and spatially appropriate energy and climate change mitigation policies, objectives and implementation measures.

The project aims to develop and enhance the methodologies involved in creating Spatial Energy Demand Analysis (SEDAs) and create tools in order to shape local level energy policy through evidence-based energy planning. The project will produce a SEDA for the entire region of Dublin (applying the SEDA in urban/peri-urban/rural areas), which can be hosted on the SEAI website and accessed by outside researchers and policy makers

RDD 72. Micro Sitting Guidelines for Wind Energy Autoproducers - DkitRDD 96. Planning and Development Guidance Recommendations to support the Solar Energy Sector in Ireland - Future Analytics Consulting Ltd

The project aims to develop technical micro-siting guidelines for small to large scale wind autoproducers in Ireland based on measurement from a range of sites in Ireland.

Site assessment and energy yield assessment for small, urban and autoproduction wind turbines is difficult due to limited resources and significant costs for the individual. The development of micro-siting guidance for autoproduction wind turbines will positively influence the provision of planning guidance for such installations and provide support to the sector.

This project will build on work completed to date, by further developing recommendations for S28 Planning Guidance, covering the deployment of large ground and roof mounted solar energy schemes in urban and rural environments. A lack of effective planning policy in the solar sector constitutes a risk to planning authorities, the development sector and communities at all scales assessing applications for solar development. Such uncertainty hampers investment in the sector.
