Community Information Webinar presentationLearn more
FuturEnergy Ireland and Ørsted are exploring the potential development of a renewable energy project at Ballinagree, Co Cork.
FuturEnergy Ireland is a new joint venture company owned on a 50:50 basis by Coillte and ESB. This project, a co-development with Ørsted, is now part of the FuturEnergy Ireland portfolio. Our commitment to the local community remains the same, and so does our dedicated project team.
A community information webinar was held on Thursday, October 7, 2021, at 7pm. If you were unable to attend, please contact our Community Liaison Officer on 1890 928740 who can send you the presentation (also available in the ‘Latest News’ section below) and arrange a one-to-one meeting to answer your questions.
The proposed Ballinagree Wind Farm project has reached its final design iteration. To share this information, we have opened a virtual consultation room that features presentations from specialists working on the project, photomontages of the area and a final layout map.
This virtual exhibition has been created to further invite collaboration with and feedback from local residents and stakeholders.

For the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic and varying levels of government restrictions, community engagement practices will be curtailed on all project sites whenever necessary. As we continue our work in accordance with Government guidelines, our commitment to keeping you up-to-date is as important as ever. The project Community Liaison Officer remains your point of contact and we would encourage you to email or call him for any query relating to the project. These details can be found on the ‘Contact’ page.
