The energy transition can be delivered more cheaply and quickly if new generators and storage connect in places that facilitate the full benefit of all these resources coming into the national power system. To achieve this, Energy Ministers have asked the ESB to develop a detailed design for a reformed transmission access regime that delivers coordinated transmission and generation investment.
On 4 May 2022, the ESB published a consultation paper that seeks feedback on four model options that have been developed through significant stakeholder consultation. The purpose of this webinar is to give stakeholders the opportunity to ask clarifying questions and to discuss the key challenges and trade-offs associated with the various models.
Going forward, the ESB will continue working with stakeholders to assess and so develop a preferred model to recommend to Ministers. The ESB anticipates that detailed design will be a hybrid model that incorporates one of the investment models and one of the operational models set out in this paper.
This session will be a collaborative event led by the ESB’s appointed Independent Facilitator. To promote well informed discussion, stakeholders are invited to submit questions on the information provided in the consultation paper to email@example.com by 20 May 2022.
Registration closes: 3pm, Tuesday 24 May 2022
