Crucial intelligence to understand the changing dynamics of the Irish power market


The Ireland I-SEM is undergoing radical transformation to reach both its own and EU’s targets for 2020 and beyond, attracting new investors to the market.

By 2030, 70% of electricity demand must come from renewables, allocated through renewable energy auctions. Alongside, flexible capacity is procured through Ireland’s DS3 programme to ensure system stability: creating opportunity across energy assets, and making it an attractive market for developers and investors.


Missed climate targets, increasing data centre energy demand, and limited interconnection with other energy markets and grid infrastructure are major challenges for Ireland, and the system needs upgrading and developing to take on new capacity.

The increased uptake of renewables applies pressure to the business cases of baseload generators –  whose running hours will decrease; and merchant renewable generators – who may suffer from price cannibalisation.


Whether you are focussed on thermal, renewable or flexible technologies, our Ireland Power Market Service provides all the insight and analysis you need.

Subscribers receive a comprehensive package combining industry-leading reports to understand the Irish market, key insights on new business models, and first-class interaction opportunities with our team and influential subscriber group.
