Expression of Interest for Flexible Demand Connections

Stakeholders have been invited to respond to our recently published Expression of Interest (EOI) - ‘Flexible Demand Connections,’ available on the ESB Networks web site.

The capacity of our distribution network is crucial in empowering our customers to decarbonise their energy consumption, aligning with our mission to deliver Ireland’s clean electric future. Flexible demand connections will play a vital role in this effort.

This initiative is a key action in our Networks for Net Zero Strategy, supporting the Government’s target to reach net zero by 2050 by ensuring a net zero-ready electricity network by 2040.  ESB Networks will explore innovative solutions to manage the growing demand for electricity by optimising existing infrastructure and reducing overall system costs. This approach includes developing local flexibility markets and implementing timed connections, allowing conditional early access to the network while minimising the need for immediate network reinforcements.  

We value stakeholder feedback and encourage interested parties to submit your views and expression of interest by 17:00 on Tuesday, 16th July 2024.

Participation is vital as it will guide our strategies to maximise distribution network capacity and support our transition to a net zero future.  Please use the Microsoft Form to register your expression of interest.

We look forward to stakeholder input and thank you for your ongoing support and engagement.

Consultation on Estimated Restoration Time (ERT) Accuracy Improvements 2022

In line with the CRU’s PR5 Regulatory Framework Incentives and Reporting (CRU/20/154) determination, ESB Networks in its capacity as Distribution System Operator (DSO), today is publishing for consultation a public consultation on Estimated Restoration Time (ERT) Accuracy.

This public consultation is intended to seek customers, industry participants and other interested parties views on the approach to the Estimated Restoration Time (ERT) Accuracy as set out under CRU/20/154.

Consultation Questions

(1) Do you have any feedback or input on the existing ESB Networks Estimated Restoration Time (ERT) process?

(2) Do you have any feedback or input on the proposed approach ESB Networks have outlined for improving the accuracy of ERTs?

(3) Were you previously aware of where to find the ERT of a fault that you have?

(4) Would you perceive an ERT that is rounded to the nearest 5 minute period (e.g. 10:00, 10:05, 10:10, 10:15 etc.) differently from an ERT that ends in another digit (e.g. 10:01, 10:02, 10:03, 10:04, 10:06 etc.)?
