Helping you make sense of the Irish energy sector


Recording | Financing net zero: Ireland’s net zero energy system

On 4 November our experts discussed how Ireland can achieve net zero in the power sector by 2050, potential energy mixes, credible long-term electricity prices and what negative carbon emissions mean for future electricity markets. They presented three scenarios on how net zero can be achieved through our forward curve, which captures the rapidly changing market dynamics of greater renewables, flexibility, interconnection energy storage and electric vehicles. 

Reaching net zero emissions by 2050 will require a radical transformation across our economy and society to meet the challenge of climate change. With the Irish government set to write this into law, we look at the significant shift the electricity system will undergo over the next 30 years to meet these targets through our ‘All-Island forward curve’.
