Future of Ireland’s Electricity System

Dublin Chamber has made a submission on Ireland’s Future Electricity System in response to an Eirgrid report detailing innovative approaches to developing the grid in order to meet ambitious 2030 renewable energy targets.


In a national consultation launched by Minister Eamon Ryan earlier this year, Eirgrid invited feedback on different possible approaches to delivery of renewable electricity infrastructure over the coming decade. Dublin Chamber has argued for a blended model, but one in which the Generation led approach would have a dominant role. The Chamber argues that a dominant role for Generation led development of the electricity system is the best option to ensure timely delivery, which is necessary for achievement of climate action goals, energy security, and avoidance of cost overruns.
