Bord Gais logoBord Gáis Energy (BGE) has a mission to generate and deliver helpful and innovative energy solutions for families, businesses and communities across Ireland.  

Our main locations in the Republic of Ireland are in Dublin and Cork.

What do we do?

We operate under three lines of business:

Retail Energy Supply

Leading energy supplier in the Republic of Ireland, serving over 650,000 home gas and electricity customer accounts and 35,000 Business supply points through our Home and Business Supply businesses which offer a wide range of customer-focused solutions including flexible payment options, online account management capabilities and a number of simple price plans.

BGE's customer charter and codes of practice set the standards of service delivery customers expect and the company is committed to helping customers by remaining true to core values of simplicity, integrity and understanding. 


Offering a 24/7 – 365 days-a-year Emergency Breakdown service, BGE has been servicing and repairing boilers for over 30 years.  Our team of engineers will carry out over 50,000 boiler services in a year, ensuring that customers' boilers are running efficiently and safely.

Power Generation

BGE's thermal generation is central to the company's vertically integrated business model and provides a natural hedge for the Retail Supply business. In 2007 we took the decision to develop a utility-scale CCGT plant – the 445MW Whitegate plant, in County Cork, which commenced operations in November 2010 and is capable of providing power for up to 400,000 homes.
