Energywise, a leading provider of energy upgrades to residential buildings, has announced plans to create 100 new jobs in Munster over the next two years. The company, which already employs 90 people in Cork and Ballyduff in Co. Kerry, will be expanding its workforce to meet the growing demand for renewable solutions in the region. The new roles will include office administrative staff as well as engineers, carpenters, fitters, installers, plumbers, roofers, and electricians, and will be spread across the Munster area.
The announcement was made at the opening of Energywise’s new offices and showroom in the Hollymount Industrial Estate in Cork City. The company, which was established as a family business in 2009, has grown steadily over the years and is now recognized as a leader in the renewable energy sector. The new premises also house Energywise Ireland’s SEAI-registered One Stop Shop, which offers customers a comprehensive range of energy upgrades for their homes.
Speaking at the launch, Tánaiste Mícheál Martin TD highlighted the importance of companies like Energywise in achieving Ireland’s climate action targets. The government has set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 51% by 2030, and the services provided by Energywise Ireland play a crucial role in reaching this target. By offering renewable solutions such as Solar PV, EV chargers, air-to-water heat pumps, energy management solutions, and full energy upgrades, Energywise is helping homeowners and businesses reduce their carbon footprint and transition to a more sustainable future.
Berth Sheehy, CEO of Energywise Ireland, emphasized that the creation of these new job opportunities will strengthen the company’s ability to deliver comprehensive sustainable solutions to its customers. With an expanded workforce, Energywise will be able to meet the increasing demand for energy upgrades and continue to provide high-quality services across the Munster region.
The announcement of these new jobs is a positive development for the local economy and reflects the growing importance of the renewable energy sector in Ireland. As the country strives to achieve its climate targets, companies like Energywise are playing a vital role in driving the transition to a greener and more sustainable future. With the support of the government and a skilled workforce, the renewable energy sector in Munster is poised for further growth and success.
