The Integration of resilient Energy Infrastructure, Communication Networks & Information Technology

integrating renewables
By 2020, Ireland will have the largest penetration of renewable generation in the EU

Wind is the abundant renewable resource but volume of PV enquiries & connections increasing

Facilitate the delivery of Ocean & Tidal energy projects

By 2027 ESB Networks will:

Minimise connection costs through innovative but secure connections

Dynamically manage networks, realising the potential of DER to minimise losses

Have a fully active network – matching flexible customer loads to variable generation

Integrating Renewables
smart network innovation
Smart Network Innovation
  • 13,000 remotely operable devices will be deployed on the Network
  • Increased visibility & control of LV networks
  • Through innovation and excellence in operations, electricity distribution efficiency will be substantially improved
  • Active Network Management will be implemented – development of Servo system to manage Demand Response
