Research & Development
Ireland has some of the best wind and wave resources in the world making it both an ideal research and test bed location, plus a significant market for renewable technologies.
A Strategic Research Cluster focusing on Advanced Biomimetic Materials for Solar Energy Conversion has been established by University College Dublin. The Tyndall Institute at University College Cork and the Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN) also have research projects of key interest to the solar industry. The Irish Maritime and Energy Resource Cluster promotes Ireland as a world-renowned research and development location.
