Northern Ireland has on average between 3 and 4 hours per day of sunshine and the further east you live, the more you typically get. This is sufficient for solar energy solutions, such as Solar thermal water heating and especially Solar Electricity (PV) electricity generation.
Wind speeds are generally fairly low except near coastal regions so this will limit the likely effectiveness of micro Wind Power; however in localised areas it might be suitable.
Mean temperatures are fairly high; over 10 °C for the ground temperature and very close for the average air temperature. This is good news for Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps, which will be effective in Northern Ireland if fitted well.
