Derrygreenagh Power

Providing energy security for future generations

Derrygreenagh Power

Derrygreenagh Power is a consented thermal power plant development (granted 2010) with a total electricity generation capacity of 600 MW. It will be located on the Bord na Móna Energy Park landbank, between Rhode and Rochfortbridge, off the R400 and c. 2km from Junction 3 off the M6 Motorway.  It will be applying for consents to facilitate connection of the development to the national gas and electrical grid infrastructure.

Ireland has committed to generating 80% of electricity from renewable sources by 2030.
Bord na Móna are working across wind, solar, biomass and biogas to help achieve this target and to provide energy security for future generations. It is recognised that to achieve these targets there is a requirement for gas-fired power stations in support a highly variable renewable electricity system as part of the transition to carbon net zero emissions by 2050.
