Energia Renewables

We are committed to investing in renewable energy sources

Energia is fully committed to investing in renewable energy sources i.e. wind energy. Substantial investment over the last number of years has resulted in 25% of Ireland’s wind power now being provided through Energia. This is via self owned wind farms and from power purchase agreements. imported

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. It has a number of key advantages over conventional means of electricity generation:
 

  • 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

 

Ireland is one of the windiest places in Western Europe and has a 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 Viridian'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

Energia has applied to the Department of Housing, Planningand Local Government for permission to carry out preliminary surveys into the suitability off a potential offshore wind site off the coast of County Waterford.
Information on the North Celtic Sea project foreshore licence application can be found on the Department's website.
