Abstract

Ireland with its resource of wind has the potential to use this natural resource and sustain the country’s power needs for the future. However, one of the biggest drawbacks to renewable energy generation, particularly wind-generated electricity is that it is an intermittent and a variable source of power. Even at the “best” sites wind varies dramatically from hour to hour and minute to minute. This leads to two main problems:
