RWE plans €1.5bn spend on Irish renewable projects

German energy giant RWE is to spend up to €1.5 billion in Ireland on large-scale renewable energy projects between now and 2030.

The company said it was undertaking long-term investments in onshore wind, offshore wind and battery storage projects across Ireland with an objective to grow a renewables business across a portfolio of technologies.

The Irish spend is part of wider €50 billion investment to expand its green generation capacity to 50 gigawatts by 2030.

RWE’s largest development project in Ireland is currently the Dublin Array offshore wind project, which it is developing in partnership with Saorgus Energy. The project will have between 45 and 61 wind turbines located on the Kish and Bray banks about 10km from the coast of south Dublin and north Wicklow. Once fully operational, it will be capable of generating between 600 megawatts (MW) to 900MW of clean electricity.
