Following the success of Solar Media’s Planning Workshop that ran for four years in different locations in the UK, a Planning Workshop* preceded the main two day conference. Taking place on Wednesday 19th October, this workshop brought together planning departments from local authorities across Ireland to educate and share best practice planning for solar farms.
Planning has often been seen as a barrier to solar development but by learning from past mistakes and working with the local planning authorities this doesn’t need to be the case. The presentations demonstrated examples of best practice for planning solar projects and the panel sessions lead to some interesting discussions about how to apply these in Ireland.
