The Offshore Renewable Energy Development Plan OREDP
The Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, with input from SEAI, have prepared an Offshore Renewable Energy Development Plan (OREDP) which describes the policy context for development of offshore wind, wave and tidal stream energy in Irish waters for the period to 2030.
In accordance with the EU Directive 2001/42/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the Assessment of the Effects of Certain Plans and Programmes on the Environment (“the SEA Directive”), a Strategic Environmental Assessment has been undertaken to evaluate the likely significant environmental effects of implementing the plans to develop offshore renewable (offshore wind, wave and tidal) energy in Irish waters.
