Your land. your opportunities.

Solar and wind farms offer landowners long-term, stable and attractive lease income. The power plants generate energy locally and help protect the climate and environment. GP JOULE has been developing, constructing and operating wind and solar farms for more than 13 years. We are the right long-term partner for you.  The roots of GP JOULE lie in agriculture. Coming from this background, we take responsibility for the land we lease, for the landowner‘s income, for nature and for future generations. Use your land to generate profit sustainably. Join Ireland’s journey to climate neutrality!

Our Vision

100% renewable for all

Good for you, good for Ireland

Earn stable lease income and become part of the journey to climate neutrality

Solar and wind power have long since become an important economic pillar for farmers and other landowners. With their high efficiency, solar farms and wind turbines offer stable lease income – even on land that would otherwise generate low returns.

Ireland and the rest of Europe have a common goal: climate neutrality. This is why the transformation of the energy system is being promoted. Capitalise on this opportunity and harvest the power of the sun and wind!

Ensure a liveable future

Solar and wind power are the central building blocks in the transformation of our energy supply – in Ireland and throughout Europe. Energy from renewable sources will reduce carbon emissions, meet climate targets and ensure a liveable future for generations to come.

In addition, wind and solar farms are already creating added value in local economies. Together with landowners and all its partners, GP JOULE drives the change that so many people in Ireland are hoping for. We want to pursue a path to net zero that involves as many people as possible. Let’s act together!

How it works

Understanding the process

At GP JOULE, we’re experienced enough to know that excellence is in the detail, that’s why we take all aspects of your prospective energy project into account when weighing up the impact on your community. Whether it’s technical, climatic, or political, we want our footprint to be minimal. 

 

We treat our long-term partners as hosts to our expertise and, as with every new venture, we enter each relationship with sustainable intentions. Our goal, as an organisation, is to enable Ireland to regenerate its rural areas, creating an energy legacy that every community can be proud of.

 

This is how we do it.

 

100% by your side

About GP JOULE

GP JOULE started by providing solar power to our founders’ farms back in 2009, but we soon realised there was potential to connect the whole community by generating locally sourced energy. We now specialise in the installation of wind and solar systems and deliver the infrastructural support to make green energy go further.

 

We’re a German company, with roots in agriculture, and found that our vision and model fit perfectly within the rural landscape of Ireland. You can’t help but be drawn to the natural energy here and how better to grow our vision to supply industry, transport, and society with 100% renewable energy, than by releasing the natural energy in Ireland’s rural communities.

 

What results, is a visible, circular economy that will strengthen the towns, counties and provinces of Ireland in a sustainable way. We look forward to working with you and seeing this green opportunity come to fruition.

Your electricity can do more
From hydrogen to e-mobility

In addition to generating electricity, wind and solar farms also offer the opportunity to build charging infrastructure for electric cars, to extract hydrogen, construct hydrogen refuelling stations, and to implement district heating. This visible, circular economy creates identification with the community, strengthens the region through added value in the local economy, and promotes environmental and climate protection.

Wind and solar power

The power plants form the basis. The electricity that you generate from renewable sources like the wind and sun can be fed into the grid, marketed directly to buyers or used to produce green hydrogen.

Green hydrogen

The demand for green hydrogen will increase significantly because it is the connecting element of the energy transition: Hydrogen is seeing increasing use everywhere – whether it is in the industry, as a fuel or for heating purposes.

E-mobility

The electric car market is growing rapidly and so is the demand for renewable electricity for mobility. GP JOULE combines power generated from renewable energy sources with sustainable energy use in a broad variety of e-mobility applications. We consult, build charging infrastructure and even develop entire regional car-sharing systems.
