Construction Begins on Moanvane Wind Farm
Construction Begins on Moanvane Wind Farm

Statkraft has confirmed that it has recently begun construction on Moanvane Wind Farm, located in Co. Offaly, between the villages of Cloneygowan and Walsh Island.  Moanvane Wind Farm is a 12 turbine, 57.6MW project that will deliver a significant amount of renewable energy on to the grid at a time when secure, sustainable energy is

Wind Farm Update
Wind Farm Update

As part of the development process of the permitted Moanvane Wind Farm, we recently informed residents, by way of a letter drop in the local area, that we will soon be starting the initial stages of construction. This renewable energy project will have a lot to offer to the local area and to the country.

Community Benefits Fund
Community Benefits Fund

The Community Benefit Fund for Moanvane is a significant fund, which will bring in the region of €300,000 per year to the local community, which adds up to €4,500,000 over the lifetime of the project. This fund has a lot of potential for a range of local initiatives, and we would love to hear more

Preparatory Works
Preparatory Works

In order to facilitate a potential start of construction later this year, some preparatory works will begin on site (w/b 21 February 2022). These preparatory works will include hedge trimming/cutting, and will take place before the bird nesting season which runs from the beginning of March to the 31st of August each year. These preparatory

Climate Action

Climate change is a wide-ranging and far-reaching challenge. But the opportunities are endless. We can all play a very positive part in reducing our impact on the climate. The development of renewable energy is the foundation upon which effective climate action can be delivered.

It is clear that in order to deliver effective action on climate breakdown, we are embracing new ways of thinking and the public want renewable sources to power their homes, cars and businesses. At the moment, the majority of us still use fossil fuels to generate our electricity, heat our homes and run our cars, all of which release carbon into the environment.

However, people are now moving towards a low carbon solution. In 2020, 43% of our electricity came from renewable sources and the country has a target to increase that to 80% by 2030.

Ireland’s electricity grid started out as a world leader in renewable energy with the construction and operation of the Ardnacrusha facility in the 1929. Our electricity demand has continued to grow over the years, and it is clear that our electricity generation system needs to revert to its roots in developing a clean, green renewable energy mix.
