Coom Green Energy Park

Brookfield Renewable Ireland and Coillte have come together to explore the potential of a renewable energy project near the Bottlehill and Glannasack areas in County Cork. This project will explore the use of wind turbines and energy storage technology.

Online Community Consultation


We are hosting a virtual public exhibition ahead of our application submission.

The exhibition can be accessed here.

This provides the opportunity to view and learn more information about the project.

We hope that local residents and interested parties will take part.

In February 2020 the decision was made to not progress with the inclusion of the landfill area in the project. Since then, we have been revising the layout in order to move forward with the development across the remainder of the site. We anticipate that we will be submitting a planning application shortly.
