EirGrid launches consultation on the Joint TSO/TAO 2019 Annual Electricity Transmission Performance Report and 2019 Investment Planning and Delivery Report

26 August 2020

EirGrid and ESB Networks, in their respective capacity as TSO and TAO, have today published for consultation the draft 2019 Annual Electricity Transmission Performance Report (APR) and 2019 Investment Planning and Delivery Report (IPD). 

The CRU as part of its decision paper CER/18/097, decisions 1 and 2, requires the TSO and the TAO to produce joint reports setting out their annual performance in regard to the operation and development of the Transmission System. The reports are intended to provide customers, industry participants and other interested parties with a clear, accessible, comprehensive, quantified but non-technical report on performance in the calendar year.

The reports will evolve overtime, taking into account feedback from industry and stakeholders and changes as may be requested by the CRU. As part of this process we are seeking customers and stakeholders feedback on the draft reports in advance of their finalisation. For example, there may be areas that you feel require more detail or indeed where you feel there is too much focus, or areas that are not currently covered that should be considered for inclusion etc.

Interested stakeholders' views are invited until 23 September 2020 and can be sent to info@eirgrid.com and consultations@esbnetworks.ie.

The 2019 reports build on our 2018 reports which are available on our website. For ease of reference the reports can be located at the following links: 2018 APR and 2018 IPD.
