The impacts of climate change on our world are now widely accepted. We are all being challenged to consider the role we play in climate action.
At the moment, the majority of us still use fossil fuels to generate our electricity, heat our homes and run our cars, all of which release carbon into the environment. However, people are now moving towards a low carbon solution and accept that this needs to change. Last year, 43% of our electricity came from renewable sources. The development of renewable energy, including solar energy, is the foundation upon which effective climate action can be delivered.
The world is getting warmer and extreme weather events are a frequent occurrence. We cannot stop climate change, but we can take action to address it.
At Statkraft, we believe that a better, cleaner, and more sustainable world is possible to achieve and that by working together, we can avoid the worst impacts of climate change. As Europe’s largest renewable energy producer, we have been making clean energy possible for over a century and continue to lead the way towards a carbon-free future.
Statkraft has been present in Ireland since 2018 and now employs approximately 100 people across its offices in Cork and Tullamore. The Statkraft Ireland team has two decades of development experience and our staff are experts in areas such as site selection and environmental assessment.
We endeavour to develop suitable and appropriate renewable energy projects that will bring long-lasting benefits, not only to our country and future generations, but also to the local communities in which they are located.
