Wind Energy is a growing sector in Ireland and Northern Ireland. It is vital to consider all opportunities to increase the use of renewable energy, which is the part of a strategy to reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

The project is addressed to these customers, who may find results of analysis useful for:
- planning offshore wind farms around Ireland
- energy producers - as wind farms are source of energy
- wind turbine producers and engineers – as analyses deliver important knowledge about weather conditions at the sea and ocean and also give a prediction.
- seafaring

Missing values in the data sets were the main issues in the project, however richness of measurements gathered through 7 to 13 years allowed to make reliable observations, especially for parameters following seasonality and observable cycle.

Results of analyses allowed to estimate amount of energy that would be possible to generate from wind turbine.
