ESB Networks manages a network of assets ranging from the 2.3 million meters in every house in Ireland, to the 400kV substations connecting hundreds of megawatts of generation. Developed over decades, these assets are located in all corners of the country, serving the needs of all Irish electricity customers.
As these assets age, and as our customers’ needs change over time, we are working to extend our assets’ useful lives, improve their reliability and maximise the capacity they can provide. Technological developments are creating new opportunities in how ESB Networks manage the assets, improving:
- Environmental impact
The Asset Optimisation innovation roadmap is designed to ensure that ESB Networks take value of advances in asset management technologies, materials and practices to develop a network that provides the services customers want.
