The Carlow Brewing Company’s production facilities in Bagenalstown, Co Carlow, will be powered by wind energy provided by Energia and third-party wind farms under a new deal.

The wind turbines will power the plant’s 400,000 kWh electricity demands to produce one of Ireland’s largest range of craft beers, O’Hara’s.

Energia’s portfolio supplies more than 600 MWs of green power. This portfolio will be increased by a further 300 MWs of renewable energy by a number of wind-farm facilities the company claims are now in development.

Commenting on the deal, Andrew Lowry, operations manager of the Carlow Brewing Company said, “Our beers use the finest natural ingredients sourced from the Irish countryside. That is why it makes perfect sense for us to sign this ‘green’ energy deal that will see all of our brewing powered by 100pc renewable energy.”

Alan Mulcahy, business markets manager, Energia, added that Energia offers Irish businesses a wide range of benefits.

"Our renewable-energy portfolio is among the largest in Ireland, so we are the ‘green’ energy supplier of choice for business,” he said.
