Energy firm Amarenco Solar is to create 10 jobs after it relocated its international headquarters from Dublin to Cork.

The company, headed by former Bord Gais chief John Mullins, is looking to develop 40 solar power projects around Ireland. It said it will hire staff for business development, administration, and tech support.

The company has already received planning permission for a project in Waterford. It is awaiting planning permission from Cork County Council for six projects in the county.

Mr Mullins was bullish on the business, and expects more growth in the future.

"After the forthcoming General Election, the sector will be expecting the incoming government to sanction supports for Solar PV.

"This will provide great encouragement to the sector and go a long way towards Ireland's commitments in carbon reduction and the avoidance of fines from Europe in 2020", he said.
