The System Operators (EirGrid and SONI) publish the System Margins Outlook Report for Ireland and Northern Ireland here.

Its publication follows a pilot phase with the objective of enhancing pro-active communications on power system conditions.

The report will provide market participants with information on:

  • the anticipated availability of dispatchable generation capacity to meet peak demand each day over the week ahead,

  • the average and lower confidence renewables forecast, and

  • the availability of the East-West Interconnector and the Moyle Interconnector with Great Britain to
    support trades - should these be required to meet power system requirements when renewable and dispatchable generation are inadequate.

The System Margins Outlook Report will be published every Monday and Friday, excluding bank holidays.
