On 10th June 2020, the Commission for
Regulation of Utilities (CRU) published its decision on the Enduring Connection

The application window for ECP-2.2 is scheduled to open to all generating and storage technologies (greater than 0.5MW) from 1st September 2021 with a closing date of 30th September 2021.

The current Generator Application Forms NC5 Form | Download PDF 603 KB and NC5A Form | Download PDF 527 KB are available for download from the ESB Networks website for all applications.
and ESB Networks (the System Operators or “SOs”) have taken this opportunity to
review and publish an updated joint ruleset of how applications are assigned to
nodes for offer processing. This update is based on feedback received from
industry and the SOs’ own processing work since the original node assignment
ruleset was published in 2009. The ruleset will remain under review,
particularly as we complete annual batches, and updates will be published as
required. Link to the ECP-2 Node Assignment Rules can be found here.
ESB Networks carried out a review of
the Generator Standard Charges and made a submission to the CRU who published a consultation on the ESB Networks submission in Q4 2020. See link to CRU Consultation here.
