The Marine Institute will host a third public information meeting on the Galway Bay Marine and Renewable Energy Test Site, Thursday 21 July at 7:30pm in the Connemara Coast Hotel, Furbo, Galway.
The meeting is part of the public consultation to ensure full information is provided on the Marine Institute’s foreshore lease application to upgrade test and demonstration facilities at the Galway Bay Marine and Renewable Energy Test Site.
The Marine Institute and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland will provide information on the background to the lease application and the scope of the proposed upgrade and address questions raised by the public ahead of the new deadline for submissions, which is Tuesday 2 August 2016. The meeting follows two previous information meetings.
The Marine Institute applied to the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government for a foreshore lease for the Galway Bay Marine and Renewable Energy Test site where prototype marine renewable energy technologies and other novel technologies can be tested at reduced scale to determine viability in an ocean environment.
