Glenard Wind Farm
The Glenard Wind Farm project has now been submitted to An Bord Pleanála. A full copy of the Planning Application and accompanying Environmental Impact Assessment Report can be found at www.glenardplanning.ie.
FuturEnergy Ireland is a new joint venture company owned on a 50:50 basis by Coillte and ESB. This collaboration combines the nation’s strongest assets in onshore renewable energy development. The proposed Glenard Wind Farm is now part of the FuturEnergy Ireland portfolio. Please be assured that the project team remains the same, and so does our commitment to you.
The proposed Glenard Wind Farm project has reached its final design iteration. To share this information, we have opened a virtual consultation room that features presentations from specialists working on the project, photomontages of the area and a final layout map.

The area which is being studied for suitability as a potential wind farm site is centrally located on the Inishowen Peninsula, to the east of Buncrana, in Co Donegal.
