• Upcoming Seminar: The ENGINE model: Determining optimal development of the Irish electricity sector under different policy scenarios

    Desta Fitiwi will present the Electricity Network and Generation INvEstment (ENGINE) model that has been under development in the ESRI. 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 will also include 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.).

    Date: Thursday, 14 March
    Time: 4PM - 5:30PM
    Location: ESRI, Whitaker Square, Sir John Rogerson's Quay, Dublin 2

  • New Report on Electric Vehicle Charging Services

    "The State of Play in Electric Vehicle Charging Services: Global Trends with Insight for Ireland", a recent report by Sarah La Monaca and Lisa Ryan, is now available below. 


    Electrification of vehicle fleets, particularly in countries with increasing shares of renewable electricity supply, represents an important pathway toward low-carbon mobility. This report examines the role of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure as a key enabler for EV uptake, and explores business models and policy approaches for promoting deployment. It then applies observed key principles to assess the Irish EV charging services market and identifies key recommendations for Irish policy.
