  • Variation No.2 - Renewable Energy Strategy
    This Renewable Energy Strategy has been prepared for Waterford City and County in the context of EU and national renewable energy targets. The purpose of this Renewable Energy Strategy is to provide a strategic document which will underpin Development Plans in the county and inform their future review. The Renewable Energy Strategy examines the renewable energy potential for the city and county and considers the strategic planning factors contributing towards the deployment of such renewable energy.

    It also highlights the importance of integrating renewable energy and landuse planning. The strategy forms part of the Waterford City Development Plan 2013-2019, Waterford County Development Plan 2011-2017 and Dungarvan Town Plan 2012-2018, and has been adopted by way of Variation to these plans. It is underpinned by a Strategic Environmental Screening Assessment and a Habitats Directive Screening Assessment which are available here.
