  Screenshot 2021 09 15 at 17.18.10


In September 2021 more than 104,000 copies of the attached wind energy education poster will be carried across a number of regional newspapers.
The infographic which is printed on recycled paper, in full colour, will be printed in English on one side and Irish on the other. It is A3 in size and our hope is that it will be used in homes and classrooms across the country.

We also have downloadable PDF here for you to download and print.
