Ørsted and FuturEnergy Ireland have been granted planning approval from An Bord Pleanála for Coom Green Energy Park in County Cork, Ireland.
Coom Green Energy Park, an onshore wind development project located near the Bottlehill waste facility, has the potential to deliver up to 121 MW of renewable energy. In addition, the project includes provision for 50 MW of energy storage. The development project is a 50:50 joint venture between Ørsted and FuturEnergy Ireland. With planning approval for the development granted, the next step for the project is to apply for a grid connection from EirGrid. Subject to successful confirmation of the project’s grid route, the site can be submitted into future RESS auctions or sell the power through corporate power purchase agreements. Subject to final investment decision, Coom Green Energy Park can potentially be operational by 2027.
