Statkraft Ireland develops, owns and operates renewable production facilities and is also involved in the trading and origination of power from our own projects and those of third parties.
Ireland is one the selected growth markets for wind and solar power in Statkraft given its significant renewable energy resources, particularly in terms of wind energy. Statkraft is already playing a leading role in the transition to a low carbon future and believe that the company’s experience and capabilities will be of service to Ireland in this transition over the coming years.
Further investments in Irish renewables fit well into Statkraft’s growth strategy. The company’s global ambition is to increase its portfolio of wind power assets to 6,000 MW and solar power assets to 2,000 MW by 2025. Statkraft Ireland’s aim is to play a significant role in Ireland’s transition to becoming a low carbon economy and we look forward to working with all interested parties including industry, communities and utility providers.
We believe that renewable energy projects can bring long lasting benefits, not only to our country and our future generations, but also the local communities in which they are located. Through positive engagement with local communities and the public, we aim to develop renewable energy projects which are socially and environmentally appropriate for the benefit of all.
