ISEA leads sustainable future

Conall Bolger, CEO, Irish Solar Energy Association.
In a nation known for its rain, Ireland’s skies are now shining brighter than ever with the promise of solar energy. In just a few short years, solar power has transformed from hero to zero, becoming a significant player in Ireland’s energy landscape.

In May 2023, solar energy contributed a remarkable 10% to the country’s power supply, a stark contrast to the 0% it delivered just two years prior. ESB Networks fittingly described solar as “the fastest-growing renewable power source in Ireland,” reflecting the rapid pace of its adoption, writes Conall Bolger, Chief Executive Officer, ISEA.

Even having only recently arrived on the power generation scene, Ireland is likely to see more megawatts of solar installed than any other onshore renewable over the remainder of this decade. With ambitious targets and supportive policy frameworks in place, the country could emerge as a global leader in solar energy deployment.

The Irish Solar Energy Association (ISEA), representing the industry’s interests, has been instrumental in driving this transformation. Through collaborative efforts, the solar industry has secured policy changes that have unlocked opportunities across various sectors, including utility-scale, residential, commercial and industrial.
