Wind Powered Energy

We are committed to investing in renewable energy sources

Energia is fully committed to investing in renewable energy sources i.e. renewable wind energy. Substantial investment over the last number of years has resulted in 23% of Ireland’s wind power now being provided through Energia. This is via self-owned wind farms and from Power Purchase Agreements. Ireland’s wind energy has a number of key advantages over conventional means of electricity generation.
 

Advantages of wind energy for business

 
  • It involves very low emissions of "greenhouse gases"

  • The fuel supplies will not run out

  • The fuel is free and indigenous- it is not subject to fuel price variations and does not have to be imported


Wind energy creates very low emissions of 'greenhouse gases':

 

Using wind energy has little-to-no effect on the environment and it doesn’t have an ongoing effect on future life. It produces less carbon emissions and “greenhouse gases”. This is in contrast to conventional electricity which contributes negatively to global warming and climate change. Switching to this type of energy enables your business to lead a more sustainable practice.
 

Fuel supplies won't run out:

 

Unlike the use of fossil fuels, wind energy will never run out. By switching to green electricity today, you won’t run the risk of electricity shortages or power outages in your office or business premises. 
 

An indigenous energy option:

 

Wind energy can be harnessed from either onshore or offshore wind farms here in Ireland, so it doesn’t have to be imported. Having the ability to generate our own electricity allows us to have greater control over our own energy. Political instabilities such as wars or disputes can have a negative impact on the supply of energy which in turn affects the price we pay. Wind energy for your business means that prices won’t be as volatile, thus saving you money on electricity costs.

Harnessing natural power

Renewable Energy and wind energy in particular is inherently sustainable, i.e., using it does not have an ongoing negative impact on life in the future.
 
Ireland is one of the windiest places in Western Europe and has tremendous potential for wind energy. Wind power can make an important contribution to Ireland's energy policy objectives of securing diverse and sustainable supplies of energy at competitive prices. Energia supplies green electricity to its customers from a range of wind farm contracts, in addition to conventional supply from Energia Group's two major gas-fired generating stations in Dublin.

Energia has 550MW of operational renewable electricity capacity contracted within its renewable energy portfolio. This portfolio includes power from our own wind farms or from Power Purchase Agreements where we agree to buy the power from the wind farm thus securing the funding for its development. Energia Renewables continues to have an aggressive development strategy with a further 230MW of wind farm projects currently in development across Ireland.


 

Offshore Renewable Energy Projects

 
Energia is developing two offshore renewable energy projects off the coast of counties Waterford and Wexford. Our North Celtic Sea and South Irish Sea projects will each generate clean electricity to power the equivalent of more than 500,000 Irish homes and businesses - marking a major contribution to achieving Ireland's carbon reduction targets.
