The Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP) aims to address some of the leading energy challenges required to decarbonise our energy system. ESIPP, the flagship project of the UCD Energy Institute, brings together a multidisciplinary team from 5 research institutions, along with our industry partners, to tackle these challenges.
Ongoing research within ESIPP and the UCD Energy Institute t has highlighted the signficant role the Hydrogen can play in Ireland's energy future as part of an integrated energy system. In the following paper we have outlined the role Hydrogen can play and some of the steps and recommendations to get there including the development of a National Hydrogen Strategy.

The Energy Institute Real Time (EIRT) Display shows the
current status of the electricity systems in Ireland and the UK,
including information on demand, wind generation, frequency and
interconnector flows. The information used to power the page is based
on data from ENTSO-E, EirGrid and Elexon. The display is updated in real
