In recent times, Bord na Móna has gone through radical change, announcing the new “Brown to Green” strategy, moving away from peat, and focusing on renewable energy, recycling, and peatland rehabilitation operations. A key objective of this strategy involves using the land to continue to underpin Ireland’s energy independence by developing green, sustainable energy sources to assist with Ireland’s commitment to achieve 70% renewable electricity by 2030.
In line with this strategy, Bord na Móna is proposing to develop a wind farm on the Ballydermot Bog Group located in Counties Kildare and Offaly. The proposed development study area comprises of 14 bogs, known as the Ballydermot Bog Group. The Bog Group is close to the communities of Allenwood, Clonbullogue, Derrinturn, Edenderry and Rathangan.
The proposed development will be known as Ballydermot Wind Farm.
