FuturEnergy Ireland

FuturEnergy Ireland is a new joint venture company owned on a 50:50 basis by Coillte and ESB that is actively looking to drive Ireland’s transition to a low carbon economy. The company’s ambition is to develop more than 1GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030 and make a significant contribution to Ireland’s commitment to produce 80% of electricity from renewable sources by the end of the decade.

The Coillte project portfolio has transitioned to the new company along with the Coillte Renewable Energy team, who bring with them a wealth of experience and expertise in developing high quality, locally supported green energy projects across Ireland.

The team

The Coom Green Energy Park project team have extensive experience in the design, construction and operation of wind energy projects. Including extensive experience of key issues which may concern communities such as noise, shadow-flicker, traffic, ecology and water quality.

We are committed to mobilising our experience to ensure we meet our stated aim of creating wind projects which are good for Ireland, good for the local communities and good for the environment.

Community Liaison Officers are working with the local community to ensure that information is available and that queries are recognised and responded to in a transparent and efficient manner. We are committed to involving local people in the project and being honest and open in how we design the project. We are also committed to ensuring that local communities share in the economic opportunity that this project would bring.

Project updates

In February 2020 the decision was made to not progress with the inclusion of the landfill area in the project. We subsequently revised the layout in order to move forward with the development across the remainder of the site and the application was submitted in December 2020. The full suite of application documentation can be accessed at www.coomgreenenergy.com.
