Join us on June 10 to gain a better understanding of the aspirations and plans for the partnership between Electrical Supply Board (ESB) and Equinor to deliver offshore wind in Irish Waters. 

From an almost standing start the Irish government has set a target of 5 GW by 2030. ESB and Equinor are looking to play a significant part in achieving this target and have a number of projects to discuss.
