Advantages of wind
Wind is a free and unlimited source of clean energy that has a vital role to play in the global shift to green energy.
It can be a variable source of energy. Turbines can only produce electricity when the wind is blowing. However, modern wind turbines are highly efficient and engineered to generate power even at low wind speeds. As wind speeds get stronger, turbines generate more electricity.
Our onshore wind farms across Ireland, North America, the UK, and the rest of Europe provide green energy to thousands of homes, while also creating jobs and economic benefits in the local communities where they’re located.
Ørsted owns and operates 19 wind farms across Ireland providing 327MW to the national grid.
