Irish Rural Link are hosting a series of consultation workshops on EirGrid’s Shaping Our Electricity Future Strategy. A new report thatdetails innovative approaches to developing the grid to meet ambitious 2030 renewable energy targets. It must redevelop the grid to manage 70% of Ireland’s electricity coming from renewable sources by 2030.
Shaping Our Electricity Future comprises four approaches to achieving this, as well as meeting the projected increase demand for electricity over the coming years.
1. Generation-Led: Government policy would influence where renewable energy is generated – favouring locations where the grid is already strong
2. Developer-Led: In this approach, we continue to connect new sources of renewable electricity as requested in any location
3. Technology-Led: This approach uses technical solutions to make the grid more resilient so it can better handle the variable nature of renewable energy
4. Demand-Led: Government policy determines where large energy users locate in Ireland
Irish Rural Link will facilitate a public consultation workshop for the South West Region on Thursday 15th April 2021, from 7pm to 9pm. The workshop aims to get the thoughts of rural communities and individuals on the four draft approaches in order to reach the 2030 targets.
This is the first in a number of regional workshops and Irish Rural Link encourages individuals to attend the workshop designated for their region. If individuals are unavailable to participate in the workshop set for their region, please register for the region closest to them.”
