Generation-Led: Government policy would influence where renewable energy is generated – favouring locations where the grid is already strong
Developer-Led: In this approach, we continue to connect new sources of renewable electricity as requested in any location
Technology-Led: This approach uses technical solutions to make the grid more resilient so it can better handle the variable nature of renewable energy
Demand-Led: Government policy determines where large energy users locate in Ireland
Irish Rural Link will facilitate a public consultation workshop for the North West Region on Tuesday 27th April 2021, from 10am to 12pm. The workshop aims to get the thoughts of rural communities and individuals on the four draft approaches in order to reach the 2030 targets.
