Claremorris Energy Co-Op successfully received planning, partnering with Mayo County Council for two 5MWe 100% community owned solar site and successfully winning RESS1 as the first of two 100% community owned sites in Ireland. Presently, Claremorris Energy Co-Op have worked with 13 other counties in Ireland to promote renewable energy through solar, successfully bringing another 9 energy co-op through the connection to grid process and ready for RESS2
Claremorris Energy Co-Operative have successfully contributed to Irelands A 40% Renewable Heat Vision for Ireland to Deliver 7%, per year CO 2 Abatement per Year Heat Mapping Plan for Ireland. Chaired by Marie Donnelly (Present chair of the Climate Action Committee). The objectives of the study are to provide a better understanding of heat demand usage, to assess the potential renewable energy resources available and to explore appropriate technical pathways to decarbonise our nation’s heat supply. The project highlighted the need for community participation and emphasized on projects such as the Claremorris district heating proposal.
