Importance of the Project to Ireland

Economic Stimulus
Dublin Array will result in capital investment of over €1.5 billion. This investment will create opportunities in manufacturing, engineering, construction marine services, turbine operations and professional services.

New Source of Long Term Tax Revenue to the State
Dublin Array will generate new sources of tax revenue for the State including foreshore rental payments, corporation tax and both direct and indirect income tax from the jobs created.

Job Creation
Dublin Array will create long term sustainable jobs in construction, operation and supply chain.

Improved Balance of Payments
Dublin Array will improve Ireland's balance of payments by replacing with offshore wind energy the large amounts of imported coal and gas that are currently used to generate electricity.

Ireland’s Economic Opportunity
Ireland has some of the best renewable energy resources in the world. Our offshore wind ranks among the most powerful in the world. The international energy landscape is changing. Ireland, which has imported oil and gas for decades and is still 85% dependent on fossil fuels and can now be more energy independent. As the world moves to tackle climate change, this new green economy will attract substantial inward investment and create jobs.
