Project

North Celtic Sea Wind Project

Energia has applied to the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government for permission to carry out site investigation surveys into the suitability of a potential offshore wind site off the coast of County Waterford.

 

 

 

 

WHY OFFSHORE WIND?

The Irish Government has declared a climate emergency and its Climate Action Plan has set ambitious targets for decarbonisation through increased levels of renewable energy generation by 2030.   Offshore wind, with its ability to generate low cost renewable energy at scale, will play an important role in achieving these targets. 

 

 

 

 

Ireland is now placed to benefit from the significant reduction in the cost of offshore wind seen in many of our neighbouring markets.  With a minimum of 3.5GW of offshore wind to be delivered by 2030, the opportunity for Ireland – at both national and regional level - is significant.
