About us

Making Ireland greener

Ørsted is a renewable energy company taking action to create a world that runs entirely on green energy. We own and operate a 378 MW portfolio of onshore wind farms in local communities across the island of Ireland.

It’s our ambition to grow our capacity significantly over the next decade to support the Irish government’s emission reduction targets. To achieve this, we aim to develop more than 1,000 MW new onshore assets, repower existing assets, enter into the Irish offshore market, and grow our presence in Ireland’s nascent energy storage market.

Our vision

Let’s create a world that runs entirely on green energy

We need to fight climate change to protect our shared home

A new chapter with Ørsted

Our onshore wind farms have been making Ireland greener since as early as 1997. They became part of the Ørsted family in 2021 with the acquisition of Brookfield Renewable Ireland, having previously been acquired in 2014 from BGE, a subsidiary of Ireland’s state-owned utility, Bord Gáis Éireann.

The existing staff, based in Cork, continue to use their expertise and local knowledge to run our Irish wind farms. They’re led by one of Europe’s most experienced renewables management teams, which now also benefits from Ørsted’s position as a global leader in the field.

Located 25 km northwest of Cashel, in County Tipperary, Garracummer wind farm’s 17 turbines can generate over 40 MW green wind power.

Pioneers in the Irish power purchase agreement market

The team in Cork has executed onshore wind corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs) with some of the largest multinationals in the technology and pharmaceutical sectors, including signing the first PPA in the Irish market, which was signed in 2016.

This has provided a solid foundation for growth in recent years and puts Ørsted in a market-leading position in the Irish PPA market.

The world’s most sustainable energy developer

In just 10 years, we’ve transformed from one of the most carbon-intensive energy companies in Europe to being ranked the world’s most sustainable energy developer in the Corporate Knights Global 100 Index. 

A global green energy leader

Ørsted’s international headquarters are in Denmark, the country where we built the world’s first offshore wind farm in 1991. Since then, we’ve undergone a dramatic transformation from an energy company based primarily on fossil fuels to the world’s largest offshore wind company.  

We develop, build, operate, and own offshore wind farms across Europe, and in North America and Asia. In recent years, we’ve expanded into onshore wind, solar power and energy storage, while pioneering the renewable technologies of tomorrow, such as green hydrogen.
