This project is a proposed development to reinforce the network between East Meath and North Dublin.
CP1021 is a proposed development to reinforce the network between East Meath and North Dublin. Reinforcement of this part of the network is needed to continue to ensure the security of the network feeding the east of Meath and the north of Dublin, between Woodland, Clonee, Corduff, Finglas and Belcamp substations.
Why is this project needed?
The project will help meet the growing demand for electricity in the east of the country due to the increased economic activity in recent years.
It will also facilitate increasing amounts of renewable electricity that is generated by windfarms in the West and South and transported for use in the east of the country. Renewable energy accounted for 36% of all electricity consumed in Ireland in 2019 and is expected to grow to 70% within 10 years.
