“I started dedicating my working life to decarbonisation more than 30 years ago…”

Former CEO of Bord na Móna and Airtricity, and founding member of Mainstream Renewable Power, Irish energy industry leader Eddie O’Connor has always been a visionary.

The green energy entrepreneur made headlines with his reluctance to sell Airtricity and when the resulting counter-bid failed, admittedly earning him millions, it spurred him to re-invest and launch Mainstream in 2008 at the onset of a worldwide economic collapse.

A leading player in the renewable power field, Mainstream has gained a foothold in the global race for solar and wind energy.

A Dangerous Visionary comes at the opportune time. Eddie’s invaluable experience combined with a confident vision and unshakeable faith has created a powerhouse legacy that will inspire the next generation of environmentally conscious business leaders.

Currach Books has commissioned an audiobook version of A Dangerous Visionary narrated by Owen Roe, one of Ireland’s foremost film, TV and theatre actors. The audiobook is available on Audible, Amazon and Apple iTunes.
