Energy Generation Made Better

Most of us take electricity for granted, but the traditional ways of generating it are changing. Airtricity is to the forefront of this transformation. By harnessing the power of wind, one of Ireland’s greatest natural resources, we are able to ensure our energy generation is the greenest of any energy provider.

We built our first wind farm in 2000 and now have 32 operational wind farms throughout Europe, with a further 13 under construction. By the end of this year we will have invested nearly €1 billion developing wind farms in Ireland. In association with SSE, our international parent company, we’re proud to lead the way in both onshore and offshore wind farm development. Currently under construction are the 504MW Greater Gabbard development, the largest offshore wind farm in the world, and the 350MW Clyde onshore wind farm in Scotland. When complete, these two projects alone will be able to generate enough energy to power 800,000 households.
