NOW Ireland – The National Offshore Wind Energy Association of Ireland was established to promote the development of Ireland’s substantial offshore wind resource and to ensure that our island leads the way in building a sustainable, green economy. The founding companies of NOW Ireland have the potential to generate over 2600MW of energy from existing resources. To put that in context, it equates to roughly 40% of Ireland's electricity use. The energy generated will be available to export or for domestic use.
Ireland has the resources to be a world leader in offshore wind and renewable energy in general. A NOW Ireland is working every day to promote the potential of this industry both at home and abroad. Now is the time to harness Ireland's energy potential.
