Public Consultation on two joint documents - Annual Electricity Transmission Performance Report 2020 - and Investment Planning and Delivery Report 2020
ESB Networks and EirGrid, today publish for consultation the draft, Annual Electricity Transmission Performance Report 2020, and the Investment Planning and Delivery Report 2020.
The CRU as part of its decision paper CER/18/097, decisions 1 and 2, requires the TAO and the TSO to produce joint reports setting out their annual performance in regard to the operation and development of the Transmission System. The reports are intended to provide customers, industry participants and other interested parties with a clear, accessible, comprehensive, quantified but non-technical report on performance in the calendar year.
The reports will evolve overtime, taking into account feedback from industry and stakeholders and changes as may be requested by the CRU. As part of this process we are seeking customers and stakeholders feedback on the draft reports in advance of their finalisation, for example are there areas that you feel require more detail or indeed where you feel there is too much focus; areas that are not currently covered that should be considered for inclusion etc.
Do you have any comments on the Annual Electricity Transmission Performance Report 2020, and/or the Investment Planning and Delivery Report 2020?
Interested stakeholder’s views are invited until 17:00pm on 6th September 2021 and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
Distribution Annual Performance Report 2020 - Public Consultation

The report is intended to provide customers, industry participants and other interested parties with a clear, accessible, comprehensive, but non-technical report on Distribution performance in the calendar year.
Do you have any comments on the ESB Networks Distribution Annual Performance Report 2020?
The consultation period will run for four weeks and will close on 31st August 2021. When the consultation closes, ESB Networks will review and consider all the comments and publish a final version pending CRU approval. Interested stakeholder's views are invited and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Power Generating Module Document (PGMD) for Controllable Power Park Modules (PPMs) - All Topologies except 2
Step by step connection guide of pre and post energisation requirements for DSO wind and solar PV generators 1MW and above which are any Topology except 2 (no DSO reactive power requirements). EU Network Code 2016/631 on Requirements for Generators refers.
Power Generating Module Document (PGMD) for Controllable Power Park Modules (PPMs) - Topology 2
Step by step connection guide of pre and post energisation requirements for DSO wind and solar PV generators 1MW and above which are Topology 2 (includes DSO reactive power requirements). EU Network Code 2016/631 on Requirements for Generator refers.
The project aims to review the current ESB Networks planning and security of supply standard and update and evolve these standards to ensure that they facilitate the objectives of the ESB Networks Innovation Strategy. These novel standards will take account of the requirements of binding National and EU Energy Directives and Network Codes, whilst cost effectively maintaining a safe, secure and reliable distribution system. These novel standards will facilitate the introduction of non secured access for distributed generators and non wires alternative solutions.
The new Standards and Guides have recently been approved by the CRU and are available to view by following the links below.

The purpose of this document is to share with our stakeholders, ESB Networks' 18 month Innovation Programme. This programme aligns with ESB Networks strategic objectives, our commitment to the Climate Action Plan targets. It is represented by three 18 Month Plans under our Innovation Pillars; Future Customer, Climate Action and Network Resilience.
The SERVO (System-wide Energy Resource and Voltage Optimisation) project was delivered in collaboration with the Telecommunications Software and Systems Group (TSSG) at Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT). This report details delivery of the SERVO Live & Flex modules, in support of the Dingle Electrification Project, which had two aims: To develop the technical infrastructure to enable secure collection, storage and reporting of data collected from IOT devices deployed on the electricity network; to develop a secure application programme interface (API) to securely enable access to this IOT data set held within the Microsoft Azure Cloud database.
Led by IERC, the StoreNet project comprised of a consortium of partners which includes ESB Networks, SMS plc (previously Solo Energy) and Electric Ireland. The project aim was to develop and deploy an intelligent Virtual Power Plant (VPP) consisting of distributed energy storage (batteries) installed at residential settings on the distribution network with the intention of maximising learnings on the potential benefits from the energy storage system.
