Business Description

Energia was formerly known as Virdian, the company re-branded in June 2019.

Energia is the leading independent energy company in the all-Ireland market. With substantial businesses in both North Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and an annual turnover of circa €1.5 Billion, the Energia Group is one of Ireland’s Top 50 Businesses. Energia Group has always been at the forefront of innovation and was the first independent energy company to enter the deregulated market to offer competitive electricity to Irish businesses in 1999. Energia, a forward thinking and innovative organisation, was first to market with many major initiatives including:
  • First independent energy company to build two modern power plants in Ireland with no state guarantees.
  • First independent energy company to offer competitive gas to Irish businesses and Ireland’s first independent dual fuel offering.
  • First energy company to trade electricity using the north-south inter-connector.
Energia has a circa 20% share of domestic electricity sales and a circa 27% share of business electricity sales on an all-Ireland basis.
