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.
Researchers at the UCD Energy Institute, including Lisa Ryan of ESIPP, have investigated the implications of the dramatic fall in economic output associated with the COVID-19 crisis for EU 2030 emissions reduction targets. This analysis indicates that since existing policy measures could now achieve the 40% emissions reduction target sooner than 2030, there is now an opportunity to increase our ambition in support of the emissions reduction targets of 50-55% in 2030 outlined in the European Green Deal.

The ESIPP team is delighted with the news that Professor Frank McDermott has today been admitted to the Royal Irish Academy.
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
time providing an interesting overview of the electricity systems.
