100 new energy jobs for Munster
An Irish energy company has promised 100 new jobs for Munster with the opening of its new Cork premises.
The new roles announced today by Energy Ireland will include office administrative staff as well as engineers, carpenters, fitters, installers, plumbers, roofers, and electricians.
The company already employs 90 people between its existing premises in Cork and Kerry.
Tánaiste Mícheál Martin TD was on hand today to launch the new offices and showroom in Hollymount Industrial Estate in Cork city.
“Ireland’s ambitious Climate Action Plan targets a 51% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and services provided by companies like Energywise Ireland go a long way in helping us to achieve this goal," said the Tánaiste.
Also launching today was Energy Ireland's SEAI-registered One Stop Shop which offers customers a complete range of energy upgrades for their homes.
In 2021, Energywise Ireland purchased two buildings in Hollymount Industrial Estate to house its offices and showroom. The buildings have been renovated to the highest standards with improved insulation and window and door upgrades. The company also installed renewable heating systems, solar PV arrays, EV charging stations, and advanced automation systems.
CEO of Energywise Ireland, Berth Sheehy, said the launch represents a "significant milestone" in the company's mission to advance sustainable practices and ensure a greener future for Ireland.
Ms Sheehy said: "The new showroom serves as a dynamic hub for homeowners, providing them with an immersive experience to embark on their journey towards a renewable, efficient, and comfortable future.
"The creation of diverse job opportunities strengthens the company’s capacity to deliver comprehensive sustainable solutions to its customers," she added.
Also commenting on the jobs announcement was Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr Kieran McCarthy, who described the news as "a great vote of confidence in the Cork economy".
Energywise Ireland designs, supplies and installs renewable solutions for domestic and commercial customers including solar PV, EV chargers, air to water heat pumps, energy management solutions, and full energy upgrades.
