    • Challenge
    • Public Acceptability
    • 400kV Projects in North East
    • Average Ireland % Fuel Type 2008 Renewables CHP 12% Coal 4% 18% Peat 6% Oil 5% Gas 55%
    • Transmission System of the Future Poyry Study Interconnection Study Offshore Grid Study
    • Complementary Solution • Onshore Grid • Interconnection/ (GRID25) Offshore – Supports: – Supports • Regional Development • Economic Trading • Economic Growth Gro th • Sharing of Generation • Competitiveness • System Support • Renewable Energy • Frequency Control
    • GRID25 is essential • To support regional development • To ensure reliability & security of supply • To utilise Ireland’s renewable energy resources Ireland s • To reduce Ireland’s carbon emissions • To increase Ireland’s connectivity to the European Grid p • To underpin the competitive electricity market
    • Thank You Aidan Corcoran, EirGrid
