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.
