Coillte has been firmly at the forefront of the bio-energy sector in Ireland, providing strong leadership in the area of renewable heat.
Coillte has established local biomass supply chains by identifying and addressing the key barriers to industrial scale users of biomass.
By providing long term, secure supply contracts, where clients pay per GJ rather than per tonne, Coillte has enabled significant investment decisions by key industrial partners, stimulating local demand for forest products, both Coillte and private. Over the last 4 years these investments have displaced >8m litres of fuel oil, saving >26k tonnes of carbon emissions, created new employment and underpinned the competitiveness of these export focussed industries.
Coillte’s thought leadership and supporting analysis has directly influenced the recent Government decision to introduce a Renewable Heat Incentive next year. This will further transform the sector, stimulating new investment, jobs and market growth.
