In 2004, CSA Group completed a study commissioned by SEAI which aimed at identifying the potential resources of geothermal energy in Ireland. One of the outcomes of the project was to create a series of geothermal maps for Ireland.
These maps present the following data:
Measured subsurface temperatures at 100m, 500m, 1,000m, 2,500m and 5,000m depths;
Modelled subsurface temperatures at 100m, 500m, 1,000m, 2,500m and 5,000m depths;
Geologic regions and rock type.
The Geothermal Maps of Ireland will be particularly useful for researchers, consultants and decision-makers interested in assessing the geothermal potential at any location in Ireland. These maps are tiled over Ordinance Survey Ireland (OSI) maps. Geothermal data will display in the left hand information cells when you click the information icon 'i' and click the area on the map for which you require this data.
