​Our Innovation Strategy

Electricity is vital to our society and we believe every citizen should have access to a secure, sustainable and affordable electricity supply. Since the Electricity Supply Board (ESB) was established in 1927, we have supplied light, heat and power to the Irish people. Today, we are proud to serve all 2.3 million industrial, commercial and domestic electricity customers in Ireland.

We are committed to enabling a brighter future for everyone, a future powered by electricity. We have a strong history of innovation and as a result have developed on of the most progressive electricity networks in the world, one that has enabled Ireland to become a leader in industry and technology.

Innovation is becoming even more vital to our business as the global energy industry experiences a period of unprecedented change. To ensure we have a balanced portfolio of innovation projects to meet the challenges ahead, we have developed eight innovation roadmaps. We are confident that these roadmaps will enable us to deliver an electricity system which serves the future needs of our customers and Ireland.
