Ireland's largest island, Achill, could supply all its energy needs from renewable sources. This paper discusses the energy analysis performed for Achill and the examination of Achill's renewable energy potential. In order to meet electrical demand, wind (offshore and onshore) and tidal energy were examined. However, the weakness of the electrical grid was found to be a prohibiting factor for wind generation. A planned upgrade of the network from one 10 kV feeder to two 20 kV feeders is likely to commence in 2003. The investigation of tidal power at Bull's Mouth is discussed.
