The newly opened Renewable Energy Centre – imecofarm – now offers a comprehensive set of introductory courses, renewable energy talks as well as hands-on workshops at its premises near Clarecastle in County Clare. The centre is equipped with displays of step-by-step guides and full-scale working models of wind, solar and water power.
“Our courses will be run in specially equipped rooms and workshops at imecofarm with plenty of expert tools, displays and detailed drawings,” explains Eddie Connors (pictured), owner and renewable energy expert at imecofarm.
The introductory one and half day courses run most Saturdays throughout the autumn. There are general overviews including a course that will answer the question – ‘Wind, water, solar – which solution is right for me?’ – as well as more in-depth days tackling one topic at a time.
The centre has a family-friendly offer running along-side these introductory courses. One person attending a Saturday morning course can bring the whole family, who will be able to enjoy the eco crafts, forest and river trails and animals and play areas and relax at the cafe and shop. The offer costs Eur25 for the course plus only €10 extra for the family admission to imecofarm.
Full courses brochures as well as details on each of the courses are available on
