SSE Renewables is Ireland’s leading developer, owner and operator of onshore wind farms, with a vision to make renewable energy the foundation of a zero-carbon world. The renewable electricity generated at wind farms operated by SSE Renewables across Ireland powers SSE Airtricity, Ireland’s largest provider of 100% green energy. The company’s onshore wind portfolio includes the 86MW Meentycat Wind Farm in Donegal and Ireland’s largest wind farm, the 174MW Galway Wind Park, which was co-developed with project partner Coillte.
FuturEnergy Ireland is a new joint venture company owned on a 50:50 basis by Coillte and ESB that is actively looking to drive Ireland’s transition to a low carbon economy. The company’s ambition is to develop more than 1GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030 and make a significant contribution to Ireland’s commitment to produce 80% of electricity from renewable sources by the end of the decade.
The Coillte project portfolio has transitioned to the new company along with the Coillte Renewable Energy team, who bring with them a wealth of experience and expertise in developing high quality, locally supported green energy projects across Ireland.
