    Statkraft plans to deploy 3 gigawatts of projects in Ireland by the year 2030

    Statkraft is targeting the deployment of 3,000 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy projects in Ireland by 2030, including the 500MW North Irish Sea Array (NISA) offshore wind project. The roadmap for achieving this goal involves 1,500MW from recently completed or ongoing projects, an additional 330MW with confirmed routes to market through the Renewable Electricity Supply Scheme (RESS) or Corporate Power Purchase Agreements (CPPA), and 500MW from the offshore RESS contract for the NISA project.

     

    Additionally, 400MW of wind and solar projects with full planning permission are in the pipeline, and Statkraft has grid services projects with planning permission, seeking routes to market this year. The company has also submitted plans for over 375MW of projects awaiting approval, and sufficient land has been secured for a pipeline of 200MW to 250MW projects to be submitted for planning permission annually over the next three to four years.

     

    Ahead of tomorrow’s Wind Energy Ireland conference, where he is scheduled to deliver a keynote address, the announcement was made.

     

    Managing Director of Statkraft Ireland, Kevin O’Donovan, commented “Since Statkraft first entered the Irish market in 2018, we’ve been making huge strides to ensure that our projects make an important contribution to the ‘80 by 30’ targets set by the Government.”

     

    “Our work continues apace and the plans we’ve unveiled today demonstrate our determination to make a real difference to Ireland’s climate and energy security.”

     

    “We’ve always said that there’s no silver bullet to reducing emissions from the energy sector. Ireland’s energy future needs will be powered by a range of renewable technologies working in harmony, so we’re proud to be one of the country’s first renewable energy companies to have a fully integrated approach to clean energy production.”
