Case Studies

Ireland
Brookfield identified a unique opportunity to acquire Bord Gáis Energy’s Irish wind business, a 321 MW portfolio of high-quality operating wind assets, a 300 MW development pipeline, and an experienced team with full operating development, commercial and financial expertise. The acquisition established Brookfield Renewable’s first operating platform outside the Americas and provided a scalable base for further European expansion. Since completing the acquisition in June 2014, we have built out the business by investing in people and processes, commissioning 170 MW of operational capacity and continued to expand our greenfield development pipeline across the island of Ireland.
Portugal

In early 2015, Brookfield identified a 123 MW operating wind portfolio in Portugal, providing the opportunity to make an attractive investment into an established portfolio of wind assets that could be grown over time. The sites, located in north and western Portugal have top-tier technology from global manufacturers and strong wind resource supported by a robust operating history. Portugal offers a significant renewables market with stable policies and a steadily improving economic environment. Marking the second acquisition for our European renewable business, the portfolio has since been fully integrated with our existing platform.
