EirGrid consultation should set path to zero-carbon Ireland

Renewable Energy Ireland today submitted its response to EirGrid’s Shaping Our Electricity Future consultation.

The submission, available here, called on the transmission system operator to show greater ambition in driving forward the decarbonisation of Ireland’s energy system.

Greater support for zero-carbon system services like demand response and battery storage; the need for market reform to accommodate increasing volumes of renewable energy; and the need to prioritise winning social acceptance from communities were all identified as key priorities.
