Codling Wind Park represents one of the largest energy infrastructure investments in Ireland this decade and is set to become one of Ireland’s largest offshore wind farm, being developed in the Irish Sea.
With the potential to generate enough locally produced renewable electricity to power the equivalent of up to 1.2 million homes annually, Codling Wind Park will support the delivery of Ireland’s Climate Action Plan targets. It will also help reduce Ireland’s reliance on imported fossil fuel-based energy and significantly improve energy security.
As work progresses we will continue to carry out extensive community and stakeholder engagement.
