About us

FuturEnergy Ireland is a joint venture company owned on a 50:50 basis by Coillte and ESB that launched in November 2021.

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

Cahermurphy II Wind Farm is a co-development with Mid Clare Rnewable Energy Ltd. The Co Clare-based development company successfully planned and constructed the renewable energy developments Slieve Callan Wind Farm and Cahermurphy 1 respectively. Both of these projects are operational.

Site study area

The area which is being studied for suitability as a potential wind farm site is located near Creagh and Kilmihil in Co. Clare.
