Bord Gáis Energy Paves the Way for Ireland's Green Revolution!

Bord Gáis Energy, a leading energy company in Ireland, has announced a number of key senior appointments as part of its mission to spearhead the clean energy transition in the country. The company has secured over €300m of investment capital since the beginning of this year, with further significant investment in the pipeline. The company has increased its workforce by 15% over the last three years, from 360 to 420, and has significant workforce growth planned over the coming years.

John Dalton, former CFO of Bord Gáis Energy, will assume a new role as the director of trading. Meanwhile, Dennis O’Sullivan, the networks managing director and chief operating officer at Ervia, is set to join Bord Gáis Energy as its assets director. With the backing of Centrica’s board, Bord Gáis Energy is well-positioned to deploy Centrica’s balance sheet strength to achieve its goals.

Dave Kirwan, MD of Bord Gáis Energy, expressed his belief in the enormous potential of the Irish market and the ability of Bord Gáis Energy to lead the energy transition in Ireland. He said, “We plan to evolve our energy offerings in residential and commercial segments. We will bring to market new net zero propositions from our services and solutions division. We will invest in upstream opportunities to enable the transition of Ireland’s energy system to net zero. We will increase the proportion of energy we source from renewable sources of generation. We are on the journey to net-zero and Bord Gáis Energy is determined to lead the way.”

Denis O’Sullivan, the newly appointed assets director, has extensive experience in energy policy and regulation at national and EU level. During his time at Ervia, Denis oversaw the development of a decarbonisation strategy and expansion of the gas network, including the introduction of biomethane and establishment of CNG refuelling network. Prior to joining Gas Networks Ireland, Denis worked for 15 years in the wind energy and waste-to-energy sectors, including leading the delivery of Bord Gais Energy’s windfarm portfolio prior to its sale in 2014. He is also the co-chair of Business in the Community Ireland low carbon pledge.

John Dalton, the new director of trading, has been with Centrica since 2012 and transferred to Bord Gáis Energy in 2014, joining the executive team in 2017. As CFO, John played a leading role in guiding the business to define and deliver on its strategy to date. With his extensive experience and commercial knowledge, he will play a pivotal role in growing the trading business in Ireland as Bord Gais Energy transitions to net zero.

Bord Gáis Energy is committed to leading the way in the energy transition in Ireland. With significant investment and the addition of experienced professionals to its team, the company is well-positioned to achieve its goals and evolve its energy offerings to meet the needs of its customers while contributing to a sustainable future.
