Commenting, Ian Thom, CEO of Energia Group said; “The Group has continued to make progress on a number of key projects and our overall sustainability journey over the past twelve months. The energy transition is the cornerstone of a sustainable future and a key focus for us as an employer and responsible business across all our activities. I am proud of the efforts and dedication of our people across the Group, at a local community and national level.

“We are focussed on an acceleration of energy transition, which requires an alignment of policies, markets, grid and resources. Working in collaboration with our stakeholders we can deliver over 3 GW of new renewable electricity capacity and provide necessary support to the system through flexible gas-fired generation and battery storage.  There is more work to do in terms of this alignment and to achieve key policy objectives set out, and we will continue to advocate for positive change.

“In the past year the energy system on the island of Ireland has faced unprecedented challenges and despite these, our commitment to invest in a sustainable future and to powering the energy transition is unequivocal.  At Energia Group I know we have the people and the projects to accelerate this change in the energy system and for our customers, providing opportunities to support a model of sustainable growth across the island of Ireland.”
