East-West link helps electricity go green

Ireland’s first electricity link with Great Britain is now operational. Running between Deeside (north Wales) and Woodland (County Meath, Ireland) it has approximately 260km in length. The underground and undersea link has the capacity to transport 500 megawatts – enough energy to power 300,000 homes. It marks the first successful launch of an EIB-backed EU recovery plan energy project. More

240 mega watts

The EIB has already funded more than 240 MW of wind farm capacity in Ireland, powering hundreds of thousands of households. More recently, the Bank has supported a major upgrade of its energy network, thus enabling the increased use of renewable energies and connecting wind farms to electric vehicle charging stations.
