Solar Energy

The sun powers natural cycles such as the the wind and water flow, and helps sustain life on the planet (e.g. plant growth). The sun is also a source of heat and light which is often taken for granted. Today, we are able to harness the sun's energy and use it to help heat our buildings, our water, and also to produce electricity for our buildings.

Wetland Surveys Ireland have been involved in the preparation of Ecological Impact   Assessment (EcIA) and Appropriate Assessment (AA) Screening reports for a number of solar energy projects.

To demonstrate our experience in this area a selection of recent projects that we have worked on is presented below.
