Wind Power Study in Ireland

March 7, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] Ireland’s Commission for Energy Regulation and the Office for the Regulation of Electricity and Gas in Northern Ireland have commissioned a consortium led by Garrad Hassan and including ESBI and the Sustainable Energy Research Centre, UCC, to investigate the feasible level of wind power projects, which can be safely and securely accommodated on the combined electricity systems of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, for three target years – 2005, 2007, 2010. The completed report indicates that some 3,300 MW of wind power can be fed into the Irish electricity network by 2010 without significant system reinforcement or increase in reserve capacity. Saving in fossil fuel costs alone from this installed capacity would amount to approximately €250 million annually.
