Port of Cork Company to be powered by 100% renewable energy
The company’s 14 different facilities, which span across the county, will be provided the green electricity by Irish company Energia.
The move is in line with The Port of Cork’s commitment to lead the wider port community in minimising environmental impacts, reducing C02 emissions and conserving natural resources.
It is the second largest port in the country and they say their partnership with Energia will help reduce their carbon frootprint in the future.
Aidan Brennan, Key Account Manager with Energia commented; “We are excited to partner with Port of Cork to provide it, and its 14 different facilities across the county, with 100% renewable energy. The Port plays a prominent role within local communities across Cork, as well as the broader regional and national economy. As a landmark infrastructure, its commitment to green energy serves as an example of best practice. At Energia we are also committed to supporting the sustainability efforts of business all across Ireland, helping organisations such as the Port of Cork make changes that have profound impacts locally and nationally, and we look forward to being part of their ongoing and future sustainability journey”.
