Clontarf Castle Hotel

Following the resounding success of last years’ Awards, we are delighted to be holding the 2nd Irish Wind Industry Awards on the 24th January 2020 in Clontarf Castle with Ivan Yates as MC once again.  Join us for a gala black-tie ceremony to remember!

The Irish Wind Energy Association works with communities, members and stakeholders in championing the transition to a zero-carbon energy system with the development and operation of wind energy at its heart. The industry we represent delivers investment, jobs and societal benefits whilst reducing carbon emissions and leading the fight against climate change. 

The Industry Awards will recognise and celebrate the most original and innovative individuals and companies demonstrating excellence in their fields and the Irish wind energy sector.  


Showcasing the very best in wind, we want to honour the people, organisations and communities going above and beyond to shape the industry's future.
