Ireland faces an extraordinary challenge to move its energy system from one primarily based on fossil fuel to one dominated instead by renewable energy. We believe that wind energy can play a central role in Ireland’s transition to a low-carbon economy by 2050.
Greensource has utilised wind energy in a number of projects across Ireland and has seen first hand the benefits that wind energy can yield. Wind power is one of the most efficient technologies to produce electricity in a safe and environmentally sustainable way. It is a renewable source of energy. It is clean, does not contaminate, is limitless and reduces the use of fossil fuels. Wind is an accessible resource which contributes to reducing energy imports and creating local employment. The production of electricity from wind energy and its efficient use contributes to sustainable development.
- Reduces the use of fossil fuels
- Reduces energy imports
- Creates local employment
- Contributes to sustainable development
Wind power is one of the most efficient technologies to produce energy in a safe and environmentally sustainable way. Wind is zero emission, local, inexhaustible, competitive and it creates jobs.
Project Example: Carrons Wind Farm
The facility consists of 2 Enercon E-82 E3 turbines, with a hub height of 85 m and a rotor diameter of 82 m. The project has been operational since 2010.
Greensource conducted all aspects of the development chain from the initial site assessment, energy yield, grid connection, planning to production.
