Connected wind farm locations in Ireland (ex Northern Ireland) extracted from SEAI's Wind Atlas.

Connected wind farms as per Eirgrid and ESB Networks reports which correspond to the wind farm layer on the SEAI Wind Atlas. (See references at description end.)

In interpreting the information, PLEASE NOTE the following cautions:
1) Grid coordinates of substations have been used where the wind farm grid coordinates were not available in the planning application information. However, as a substation may or may not be located within the site of the wind farm it serves, it should be noted that the precise accuracy of this coordinate information cannot be assured.
2) Possible stand-alone projects not intended for connection to the Irish electricity grid are not included in this map.
3) The map entries are not necessarily all discrete wind farms. Some could be extensions to existing wind farms, and some could be formal registered capacity additions involving no physical addition of new wind turbines.

Zipped collections of shapefiles are available in two spatial reference or coordinate systems:
1) Irish Transverse Mercator (ITM, EPSG:2157)
2) WGS 84 Web Mercator (EPSG:3857)
