EirGrid regularly publishes a list of generators in Ireland who have been part of the “gate” group processing system. These include generators who have connected to the transmission system and those who have signed agreements to connect (known as ‘contracted’ generators).
The following documents provide information on wind farms and other generators in Ireland where they have connected to the transmission system operated by EirGrid or have signed contracts with us. The wind farms here are larger ones in terms of generating capacity.
Please note that while every effort is made to ensure that the connected and contracted information is correct at the time of posting, it is subject to regular change.
Other Types of Generators
ESB Networks, as the Distribution System Operator (DSO), publishes lists for generation which is connected to, or contracted to connect to the distribution system. A link to the relevant page on the ESB Networks website for distribution information can be found here.
