Why is Coillte involved in wind energy?

Coillte is involved in wind energy because we are committed to the development of sustainable energy in Ireland, as we move towards a sustainable future with enhanced energy security. As the largest provider of high quality sites to the renewable energy sector, Coillte is making a significant contribution to Ireland’s 2020 target of achieving 40% of its electricity consumption from renewable sources.
