The
FuturEnergy Ireland story

In November 2021, Coillte and ESB joined forces to launch their joint venture company FuturEnergy Ireland.

As custodian of 7% of Ireland’s land, Coillte plays a critical role in tackling climate change through the active management of its land and forest resources and the manufacture of sustainable forest products.

Coillte’s portfolio of proposed wind farm projects and its Renewable Energy division transferred to FuturEnergy Ireland in Q4 2021. FuturEnergy Ireland is part of the company’s wider strategic plan and commitment to creating a sustainable future.

ESB, through its Brighter Future strategy, is furthering its investment in and commitment to onshore wind generation in Ireland, one of the main technologies underpinning the clean electricity systems that will power our societies into the future.

Mission

Combining the Irish State’s strongest assets and expertise in renewable energy development, FuturEnergy Ireland’s mission is to maximise the potential of our unique wind and land resources and accelerate Ireland’s transformation to a low carbon energy economy.

Vision

Our ambition is to develop more than 1GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030, with supportive battery energy storage facilities, and make a significant contribution to Ireland’s commitment to produce 80% of electricity from renewable sources by the end of the decade.

Purpose

Using our team's knowledge and expertise, we develop renewable energy projects in the most responsible manner with the strong support of local host communities. Together, let's create a cleaner, brighter future for our children, our nation and our world.

Our sustainability journey

At FuturEnergy Ireland, we believe in developing renewable energy projects in a responsible way that considers local communities and the environment in the highest regard. Sustainability underpins everything we do, from our company culture and community engagement all the way through to project construction.
Our ambition is to generate at least 1GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030 and in doing so, make a significant contribution to tackling climate change. We are committed to supporting Ireland’s transition to a net zero future and will work hard to ensure we carry out our business in a responsible, sustainable way.
We are looking forward to sharing our first Sustainability Report with you in Q3 2024.


In November 2023, FuturEnergy Ireland joined the United Nations Global Compact. The UN Global Compact is the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative with 25,000 members from over 167 countries.
The initiative aims to align company strategies with universal principles on human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals.
