About the project
Ørsted is exploring the potential to develop a wind energy project in the townlands of Brittas, Rossestown and Clobanna, near Thurles, Co. Tipperary. The project aims to supply clean and sustainable electricity to the national grid, supporting Ireland’s objective to achieve 80% renewable electricity by 2030. Environmental studies have commenced at the site. These studies, along with feedback from the local community and other stakeholders, will be used to inform the design of the project.
About Ørsted in Ireland
Ørsted is a renewable energy company taking action to create a world that runs entirely on green energy. We develop, construct, own and operate onshore and offshore wind farms, solar farms, energy storage facilities, renewable hydrogen and green fuels facilities, and bioenergy plants. Ørsted owns and operates 19 wind farms across Ireland providing 327MW of electricity to the national grid, with additional renewable projects in the construction and planning phases.
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 new onshore assets, repower existing assets, and grow our presence in Ireland’s nascent energy storage market.
At present, we’ve got a further 45 MW of new onshore wind ready to build, and 298 MW in the advanced development pipeline.
