Power Generation

Bord na Móna’s strategy is to grow our power generation business and become a leader in Ireland’s renewable electricity generation market.

As part of Bord na Móna’s journey towards sustainable energy generation, our goal is to generate in excess of 500,000 MWh of renewable electricity in 2015, creating enough electricity to power over 90,000 homes.

We have a number of existing power generation assets; including Edenderry peat/biomass generating station, Cushaling peaking plant, Bellacorick, Bruckana and Mountlucas wind farms. We also operate and maintain the Drehid landfill gas plant.

By 2020, more than 50% of our installed capacity will be renewable technologies. The goal of these projects is to reduce the carbon intensity of the electricity we generate by more than 70% by 2020.
