Powering Irish industries

EI-H2, a renewable energy company with a focus on hydrogen, is Ireland’s first green hydrogen company. 

We have announced plans for Ireland’s first Green Hydrogen facility and are seeking planning  permission for a 50MW electrolysis plant in Aghada, County Cork. When operational the plant will remove 63,000 tonnes of carbon emissions annually from the Irish industry and power generation.

Upon completion the site will be one of the biggest green energy facilities of its kind in the world. Over 85 full-time direct and indirect jobs will be created and EI-H2 Aghada hopes to be operational before the end of 2023. 

The cost of construction and connection to the electricity grid is expected to be in the region of €120m.

Owned by Cork businessman Pearse Flynn, EI-H2 will play an integral role in powering Irish businesses as the country takes strides towards a zero emissions future in 2050.

A message from our founder

“Ireland is starting to take leadership in tackling climate change.

The production of hydrogen from excess wind capacity will play a significant role in Ireland’s decarbonisation, given that Ireland could be generating 8 GW of offshore wind by 2030. 

There inevitably will be ‘curtailed’ energy that will go to waste unless we find ways of using it. EI-H2 is planning the production of safe and environmentally-sound green hydrogen that will allow industry to decarbonise. 

This initiative will create and sustain local jobs, and go a long way towards helping Ireland meet its international obligations on climate change.”

Introducing our senior management

Pearse Flynn

Founder

Pearse is highly motivated and has had a hugely successful career in the corporate world, moving quickly up the ladder and hitting lots of milestones. He has a proven track record for delivering results. He was once the youngest Vice-President ever in a company and he received a swift promotion to corporate headquarters. 

He quickly realised the best way to get a promotion was to move to the parts of the business that were not doing well and engage to fix them. Pearse joined Newbridge Network, where he was promoted to President of the company. On joining, the company had a market cap of €2.4 billion and Pearse later sold it to Alcatel for nearly €12 billion. 

Pearse decided he was experienced enough and could do his own thing and the story really begins there. He has had numerous success in financial services, property, football, hospitality and now energy. 

His newest venture is Green Rebel Marine Limited, which was established to service the future needs of offshore wind farms. The company acquired Crosshaven Boatyard in County Cork, which will serve as a base for the new operation to survey, equip and service a network of planned wind farms. 

Pearse has invested €10 million of his own money into the project, including the purchase of two specially equipped, high tech ships and a survey plane, to service this emerging industry. Pearse hails from a fishing family in Ballycotton in County Cork and he supports jobs, community around the Irish Coast.
