Educational Resources

ESB is committed to supporting educational access as a means of empowering young people to fulfil their potential, while enabling them to develop the skills necessary to critically assess the world around them and become the problem solvers and innovators of the future.

We do this by funding educational initiatives and programmes through our Energy for Generations Fund and Wind Farm Community Funds. We also have our dedicated education programme – Generation Tomorrow –  where we support partners working in the STEAM area. 

ESB’s YouTube Channel

We have numerous educational videos on electricity generation, smart networks and renewable energy, as well as fun science experiments for school children on our YouTube channel.
