Offshore Careers

The development of offshore wind energy generation is one of the most important pieces of work that Ireland will undertake this decade.

EirGrid is responsible for connecting electricity generation infrastructure, such as offshore and onshore windfarms, into our national electricity grid.

Right now, we’re leading the plans to connect wind power off the east and south coasts, bringing more renewable energy onto the grid.

This programme will help reduce Ireland’s dependence on fossil fuels such as coal and gas and increase Ireland’s energy independence. 

To achieve this, we need to connect offshore renewable energy to the electricity grid. 

Offshore renewable energy will lay the foundation for significant direct and indirect social and economic benefits and opportunities, regionally and nationally. 

Our roles within the offshore team represent a huge opportunity for you to make a difference on a national scale as we work to achieve our climate change targets during this decade.

Be part of a bigger future with EirGrid, as we make Ireland renewable ready.
