Irish Sea wind farm growth

Irish renewable energy companies Gaelectric and Oriel Windfarm will look to jointly begin development on as much as 540 megawatts of wind energy in the Irish Sea if a smaller demonstration goes according to plan.

The two firms yesterday announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to co-develop a 15mw wind farm entailing an investment of €80m.
