Ørsted has become the first renewable energy company to sponsor the I Wish STEM showcase event which promotes careers in STEM to young women

Olivia Roche, Project Developer at Ørsted spoke during the Girls in STEM 10 Fast Facts panel discussion at I Wish 2023. During the panel discussion, Olivia spoke about her experience as a woman in STEM and the diversity of her role at Ørsted.
She shared insights with those attending on the development of wind and solar farms in Ireland and globally, as well as the processes behind securing land, engaging with communities, and working with planners and environmental experts to assess projects’ possible impacts.

At the Ørsted exhibition stand, 3,000 visiting transition year students could generate their own power using an energy bike, learn about our planet by going on a space safari with VR goggles, and hear more about renewable energy and Ørsted’s activities in Ireland.

Ørsted has to date invested over €500m in Irish renewables managing 10% of the total wind assets across the Island of Ireland which is equivalent to powering over 234,000 homes.
