Home 9 Wicklow Chamber Partners With SSE Renewables

Strategic Partnership 2023/24

WICKLOW Town and District Chamber of Commerce have joined with leading renewable energy owner, operator and developer, SSE Renewables to announce a strategic partnership for 2023/24.

Stephen Delaney, President, Wicklow Town and District Chamber of Commerce, was joined at the chamber offices in Wicklow Enterprise Park by John O’Sullivan, Project Manager and Deirdre Keogh, Community Engagement Manager, SSE Renewables for the announcement.

The agreement will see SSE Renewables support Wicklow Chamber as overall sponsor for 12 months and runs throughout the remainder of this year and into 2024.

SSE Renewables is actively working to progress the delivery of offshore renewable energy to help secure Ireland’s energy future, reduce carbon emissions and create local jobs. Ireland is a nascent market for offshore wind with huge potential and critical infrastructure projects such as Arklow Bank Wind Park 2 will significantly contribute to the Irish Government’s target of achieving 5GW of offshore wind by 2030.

Our Chamber welcomes the new jobs that will be created across the county and looks forward to a successful partnership over the coming year.

Stephen Delaney


The current president of the
Wicklow Chamber

Founder of the Shoe Box since 2018, they will be celebrating their 5th year in business this year. A native of Brittas Bay, Stephen attended De la Salle College Wicklow Town. He also serves on the boards of Holy Rosary NS, Colaiste Chill Mhantain and Wicklow & District Credit Union.

Stephen has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce since 2017 having served on numerous Chamber committees and initiatives.

Since joining the chamber, he has seen how the organization and business as a whole have been negatively impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic over the last number of years which proved to be unpredictable, challenging and often frustrating for all businesses not just in Ireland but indeed globally – and most certainly – locally. “None of us expected what would enfold nor were we prepared for the changes that we have had to make to both our business and personal lives. I would like to say well done to the chamber and all of you here for steering your business through this challenge”.
