Co-firing peat with biomass has produced impressive results at our Edenderry Power Plant

By mixing peat with biomass, Bord na Móna has managed to reduce its carbon footprint by a substantial amount. Having already introduced biomass co-firing at Edenderry, we aim to increase the share of carbon neutral material in all three peat energy stations.

Edenderry Power Output

Originally developed as a peat-fired power plant, Edenderry Power Plant is now co-fired with a mixture of peat and carbon-neutral biomass. The use of biomass as a co-fuel commenced in 2008 and has increased steadily year-on-year. It has an installed capacity of up to 128 MW of electricity and supplies about 2.5% of Ireland’s national requirement.
