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. 

Consultation Question

Do you have any comments on the Annual Electricity Transmission Performance Report 2020, and/or the Investment Planning and Delivery Report 2020?
