Risk to security of power supply in Ireland, warns CRU

DUBLIN: The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) has warned that there is a serious risk to the security of supply of power in Ireland.

According to the latest risk register for the CRU, the risk to security comes amid fears of significant outages and collateral damage to Government policy on climate change.

The risk register raises concerns that electricity supply needs will not be met between now and 2025.

A project management office comprising CRU, EirGrid and Environment Department has been set up to deal with power supply issues. This office coordinates regular update reports on the programme, including current risks and issues and status of actions/mitigations. The report also says that problems can be dealt with in a timely manner using this system.
