Solar energy


Transforming the way we power the world


Solar is currently the fastest growing power generation technology in the world. At Ørsted, we’re utilising solar power to harness nature’s resources and deliver clean, renewable power to the population.

Solar projects are integral to diversifying renewable energy supply. At Ørsted Onshore, we aim to grow our global portfolio to a ~50:50 wind and solar PV capacity mix towards 2030.

Our first Irish solar project is located in Ballinrea, Co. Cork. With construction due to begin in 2024, the Ballinrea Solar Farm is expected to be operational by 2025 and will add a further 65MW of solar to Ørsted’s global goal of 17.5GW of onshore renewables by 2030.
