Bord Gáis Energy is a key player within the Irish wind energy market with 15% of the installed wind capacity in Ireland at present and an operational capacity of 234MW. We own and operate 135 turbines on 13 wind farms in eight counties - Kerry, Cork, Limerick, Clare, Tipperary, Kilkenny, Donegal and Tyrone.
Our long-term investment in renewable energy reflects and supports the Government’s target of 40% of electricity produced by renewables by 2020. It is envisaged that wind energy will provide the largest source of renewable energy to achieve these targets.
Bord Gáis Energy plans to add 250MWs of wind energy over the next three years as part of a €400 million investment.
