Midlands Power Plant To See 40% Reduction In CO2 Emissions From New Development

The energy complex will be connected to the gas network.

A midlands power plant will see its CO2 emissions reduced by 40% as part of a new development.

The Edenderry Renewable Energy Complex will be connected to the gas network, which will enable the integration of natural and renewable gas into the fuel mix.

The project will see the construction of a steel transmission pipeline, which will be around 22km in length.

It will intitially facilitate the transmission of natural gas, with a shift to renewable gases over time

Construction is expected to begin in 2027, with the project to be fully operational by 2029. 

John Reilly, Head of Renewable Energy at Bord na Móna says "Our existing diesel generation assets located at the site play a key role in supplying 116MW of electricity to the national energy grid during periods of high demand when solar and wind energy availability is limited, and this development will ensure these generation assets are operating even more sustainably, as one of the largest on-demand renewable electricity generators in Ireland"
