Good News About Offshore Wind Development in Ireland


offshorewind1On November 12, 2014, Renewable Energy Magazine announced that “the government of the Isle of Man has selected DONG Energy as its preferred partner to develop a new offshore wind farm in the Irish Sea for delivery in 2023.

The proposed site of the wind farm is off the east coast of the Isle of Man within the 12-mile limit of the island’s territorial coastline. The agreement for lease would be in respect of the 700MW Project Option for delivery in 2023. The Isle of Man government estimates that leasing parts of the seabed for renewable energy generation will boost the island’s public funds by at least £5 million a year and create more than 50 new local jobs.”
