Building a zero carbon Ireland
Wind Energy Ireland is committed to the promotion and education of wind energy issues and plays a leading role in the areas of conference organisation, lobbying and policy development on the island of Ireland. WEI is committed to promoting the use of wind energy in Ireland and beyond as an economically viable and environmentally sound alternative to thermal or nuclear generation.
Our 2022 Strategic Plan sets out our vision for Ireland - a net-zero emissions electricity system, with wind energy at its heart, by 2035.
We will do this by building evidence to support a sustainable and economic transition, building support for enabling policy and regulatory decisions, building knowledge to help people make the right choices and building a roadmap for delivery of renewable generation and supporting technologies.
