Welcome to the Energy Research Map of Ireland
This website represents a continuation of SEAI's effort to bring improved coherence to the energy research landscape in Ireland and to present a useful resource for stakeholders in government, the academic institutions and industry.
It is the result of a data collection exercise that has identified and categorised over 700 energy related research and development projects on the island of Ireland, led by over 200 Principal Investigators across twenty-one academic institutions in the period 2004 - 2010. These projects represent €174 million in research and development funding from various sources including government, industry and the EU.
The process of building the Irish Energy Research Map has required the deepening of relationships across the academic institutions and with the energy research funding agencies. Maintaining the database will require continuing cooperation with these key stakeholders. We would like to acknowledge the commitment and enthusiasm of all those who participated in the exercise, particularly the university research offices, and the energy specialists in Science Foundation Ireland. We look forward to continuing the engagement into the future.
