Wind Farm & Turbine Planning Applications

PlanningAlerts.ie includes information on over 400,000 planning across Ireland since 2010. Using this valuable information, it is possible to extract keywords on various planning trends across the country. In this case, we focused on the location of all planning applications that include keywords relating to wind energy. The keywords we selected for this study include "wind farm" and "turbine". We then took these development descriptions and generated a word cloud to view the information that is showing up most frequently within these developments.

Take a look at the locations of these planning applications in relation to their decision status and location on the map. You can tap on any planning application to view the planning application file on PlanningAlerts.ie.
