Chambers Ireland have submitted a response to the EirGrid consultation on ‘Shaping Our Electricity Future’ Version 1.1
EirGrid are working to update the ‘Shaping Our Electricity Future’ roadmap before the end of 2022 to reflect changes to government policy in both Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Chambers Ireland’s primary observation on the “Shaping our Electricity Future” plan is that it needs to be more ambitious.
While businesses were most supportive of the ‘demand led approach’ (where large energy users were directed by government policy to develop new activities in areas where there is an abundance of electricity) there is a strong sense across our network that such a strategy will not be sufficient to facilitate economic growth while securing supply.
