BayWa r.e. continues expansion in Ireland
This new partnership marks the further progress of BayWa r.e.’s projects business in Ireland and underpins its mission to improve renewable energy for a more sustainable future.
Together, BayWa r.e. and Rengen Power aim to develop and deliver 350 MW of wind capacity over the next three years and are set to play a significant role in wind farm development in Ireland.
The partnership will seek to explore opportunities to develop new renewable energy projects across the country.
Declan Cullinane, Country Manager Ireland, BayWa r.e. Ireland Ltd., commented: “We are delighted to expand our presence in the Irish market with this key partnership.
Passionate about providing energy sources for a low carbon future, Rengen Power is the perfect partner for us as we seek to step up our involvement in Ireland. We share a similar grass roots story, and our development approach and ethos when it comes to our environmental responsibilities are very much aligned to building strong collaborative relationships with local communities.”
"This development partnership with Rengen Power will take BayWa r.e.'s current project pipeline in Ireland to 600 MW. This will provide subsidy-free projects to support the Irish government’s ‘70% renewable by 2030’ targets and position our Irish business as a major player in the market’’ added Gordon MacDougall, Managing Director, BayWa r.e. UK Ltd.
