Desta Fitiwi presented the Electricity Network and Generation INvEstment (ENGINE) model that has been under development in the ESRI on Thursday 14th March. The model can be used to answer different policy-related questions pertaining to the least-cost development of power systems in the island of Ireland and beyond. The presentation included insights from case studies on the whole island such as the best locations and quantities of electricity generation and transmission infrastructure under different policy scenarios (e.g. high datacentre rollout, north-south interconnector, high RES diversification, centralized vs decentralized RES development, storage, etc.).

We are delighted to see the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has formed a new business entity, EPRI Europe Limited, to expand its collaborative research and development programs in Europe, with headquaters in Dublin. EPRI are already collaborators on ESIPP and this development will enable increased colleboration into the future.
