The Irish Ports Offshore Renewable Energy Services (IPORES) report provides an extensive and updated summary of information on port infrastructure, facilities and management plans in relation to meeting requirements for marine renewable energy developers. In total, consultations and analysis are provided on 14 ports on the island. A number of ports in the Republic are identified as having the necessary facilities, infrastructure and hinterland that could support the development of the offshore renewable energy industry. We have consequently identified 3 ports as being Category A, 5 ports as Category B and 3 ports as Category C.

Provenance information In 2011 an assessment of the Irish ports and shipping requirements for the marine renewable energy industry was undertaken by RPS Consulting on behalf of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and the Irish Maritime Development Office (IMDO). In January 2012, the IMDO undertook further consultation with the port authorities to address some concerns arising from this report and, importantly, to further develop a picture of areas where Ireland could achieve growth in the short to medium term.
