We are ESB Networks. We ensure that electricity gets to the homes and businesses of our 2.3 million electricity customers, safely and efficiently. We have invested over €6bn in the electricity network over the last 10 years to ensure that it is reliable and enables communities and businesses in Ireland to grow and develop..
We provide a wide range of services to our customers, all of whom need to be registered with an electricity supplier. Each year we carry out over 9 million meter readings and provide these to your supplier in order to ensure you receive correct billing. We also deliver a range of technical services such as restoring supply when network faults occur, for example due to storms. Other services, some of which are chargeable, include undertaking line alterations at the customer’s request and carrying out service alterations requested via suppliers.
Your safety is our priority. Electricity is a powerful energy source but it can be dangerous. Always follow our safety guidelines. To ensure you stay safe, stay clear of overhead, underground and fallen electricity wires, always look out for electricity wires when you are outside . ‘Stay safe, stay clear’. For emergencies call 1850 372 999.
Acting responsibly in all aspects of our business is one of our key priorities.

Smart Grids have been identified as a key enabler in the reduction of climate emissions and to reduce climate change. To enable the smart grid network the development of a reliable cyber-secure national wide area radio access network, independent of the public mobile operators, is needed to meet the demand for the control, protection and management of utility assets. The National Radio Access Network project will involve the development of a dedicated wireless network for the reliable transport of data for future smart grid applications.
The CRU has approved Modification No. 43 of the Distribution Code. This modification proposal describes the proposed structural changes to the Code that will facilitate the inclusion of new and changed content driven by the adoption of the Requirements for Generators [RfG], in the first instance. Some of the proposed changes will also facilitate the adoption of parts of other Codes such as the Demand Connection Code, in due course.

ESB Networks engaged in the IERC Co-ordinated Superhomes 2.0 project with four Irish based consortium partners in order to develop an understanding of the impact on the distribution network and electrical demand in general of ASHPs in newly retrofitted residential dwellings. We installed Advanced Metering Infrastructure at 20 diverse premises located throughout the country and leveraged this technology to gain an in-depth understanding of the seasonal and climate factors that impacted these premises’ energy requirements.

RESERVE is an EU H2020 funded project with 10 other consortium partners to develop solutions capable of enabling 100% renewable generation on electricity networks. ESB Networks focused on Voltage Control techniques which utilise inverter-based technologies to provide voltage support to the distribution network. The project successfully demonstrated that a Voltage Control solution can be implemented in real world scenarios utilising multiple types of DER technologies, are inherently scalable, can be integrated with additional external monitoring devices and is capable of positively contributing towards the resolution of constraints encountered by the distribution network.
