In late 2013, researchers at NIRSA and AIRO completed a study examining local authority wind energy policy and strategies across Ireland with the objective of identifying commonalities and differences between methodological approaches for selecting preferred and non-preferred areas for wind energy development and the implications for achieving Ireland's renewable energy targets.

The research was commissioned as part of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland's (SEAI) Sustainable Energy RD&D Programme 2013.
