About Bord na Móna
Bord na Móna is an iconic Irish company operating four business units – Powergen Development, Resource Recovery, Energy and New Business. Over 80 years ago, Bord na Móna was established to develop Ireland’s peat resources for the economic benefit of Ireland. Ireland’s urgent need to support positive climate action measures means the company is now managing its land in a very different way.
As part of its Brown to Green Strategy, Bord na Móna is implementing an extensive peatland rehabilitation programme and expanding its low carbon operations as well as its Resource Recovery and recycling business. A key objective of this strategy involves using the land to continue to underpin Ireland’s energy independence by developing green, sustainable energy sources to assist with Ireland’s commitment to achieve 70% renewable electricity by 2030. The company is rapidly decarbonising and as it does it is building a new, more sustainable business and rural economy.
Bord na Móna has a strong record of siting, designing and delivering wind farms within its cutaway peat lands, such as Bellacorick, Bruckana, Mountlucas and Oweninny Wind Farms.
