ESB Networks Commissions Gillinstown Solar Farm


                  ESB Networks’ 95MW Gillinstown solar farm in County Meath has begun delivering power to the grid. The company connected 23 large-scale renewable generator projects to Ireland’s electricity network in 2022, with total green energy capacity of 688MW. In addition, some 79MW across four battery storage projects were connected this year. ESB Networks Managing Director Nicholas Tarrant said: “The connection of almost 700MW of clean energy this year is a significant collective achievement for ESB Networks, the renewables community and for Ireland. “It represents a 15% increase in renewable generation year-on-year and it is testament to ESB Networks’ continued investment and innovation in the development of a safe, resilient and flexible electricity network. “Ireland is a world leader in the integration of intermittent renewables on its electricity system, with wind comprising almost half of electricity generation for October and November. The Climate Action Plan and ESB’s Net Zero by 2040 strategy commits to an acceleration in renewables connections in the next decade as we seek to deliver on our climate targets as we transition to a greener, brighter future.”
