As co-development partners, FuturEnergy Ireland and SSE Renewables (SSER) are jointly exploring the potential for a renewable energy project at Cummeennabuddoge, Co. Kerry.

FuturEnergy Ireland is a new joint venture company owned on a 50:50 basis by Coillte and ESB.  The proposed Cummeennabuddoge Wind Farm, a co-development with SSER, is now part of the FuturEnergy Ireland portfolio. Our commitment to the local community remains the same, and so does our dedicated project team.

While this project is at an early stage of development, we believe in communicating with our neighbours right from the beginning. Our aim is to develop responsible projects in a way that is good for us, for society and for our neighbours.

The project Community Liaison Officer remains your point of contact and we would encourage you to email or call him for any query relating to the project. These details can be found on the ‘Contact’ page.

Project Details

The area which is being studied for suitability as a potential wind farm site is situated at Cummeennabuddoge, Co. Kerry, on a large site of around 890 hectares, located approximately 5km northwest of Ballyvourney, close to the Cork/Kerry border.
