SSE Renewables is Ireland’s leading developer, owner and operator of onshore wind farms, with a vision to make renewable energy the foundation of a zero-carbon world. The renewable electricity generated at wind farms operated by SSE Renewables across Ireland powers SSE Airtricity, Ireland’s largest provider of 100% green energy. The company’s onshore wind portfolio includes the 86MW Meentycat Wind Farm in Donegal and Ireland’s largest wind farm, the 174MW Galway Wind Park, which was co-developed with project partner Coillte.
Coillte Renewable Energy are responsible for harnessing the wind energy above Coillte forests. Coillte is currently working toward our aspiration of adding a further 1GW of wind energy generation capacity over the next ten years, driving Ireland’s ambition toward 70% renewable electricity by 2030.
