The Wind Farm
The development of Cloncreen Wind Farm involves an investment by Bord na Móna of over €100m in low carbon electricity generation infrastructure in Co. Offaly. The project will make a significant contribution to the achievement of Ireland’s 80% renewable electricity target by 2030. It is one of the largest projects to clear in the RESS-1 auction.
Sensory Garden @ Cloncreen Wind Farm
The Cloncreen project team has completed a new Sensory Garden at the Cloncreen Wind Farm. The garden was developed to provide children and adults alike with the opportunity to gain physical and mental stimulation while being in an outdoor environment, and is a refuge for everyone to enjoy and to explore all that nature has to offer.

The Wind Farm
The purpose of the Cloncreen Wind Farm is to generate renewable electricity for the domestic electricity market in Ireland.
We ensure that people living in the area benefit from the development of our wind farms by supporting communities through our various Community Benefits packages.
We are committed to continuing to keep local residents informed about the wind farm.
Wind generated 36% of all electricity in Ireland in 2020, second only to natural gas.
42% of all electricity generated in 2020 came from renewable sources.
Ireland has a national target to move to 80% renewable electricity by 2030.
Ireland had a total installed wind capacity of 4.3 GW at the end of 2020 - an increase of 180 MW on 2019.
