About us

FuturEnergy Ireland is a joint venture company owned on a 50:50 basis by Coillte and ESB that launched in November 2021.

By combining the assets and expertise of these two leading commercial semi-state companies, FuturEnergy Ireland is strongly positioned to tackle climate change and improve energy security on behalf of the people of Ireland.

Our 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.

FuturEnergy Ireland’s co-development partner for this project, 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 powers SSE Airtricity, Ireland’s largest provider of 100% green energy.

Site study area

The site study area is located at Cummeennabuddoge, Co. Kerry, on a large site of around 925 hectares, approximately 5km northwest of Ballyvourney, close to the Cork/Kerry border.
