About ESB Networks
ESB Networks is the Distribution System Operator (DSO) for the electricity network in the Republic of Ireland. They are in charge of the planning, construction, maintenance and operation of the electricity distribution network which includes all distribution stations, overhead electricity lines, poles and underground cables that are used to bring power to Ireland’s 2.3 million customers. ESB Networks also finances, builds and maintains the transmission system through which electricity flows from generation stations to bulk supply points before joining the distribution system.
ESB Networks has one of the world’s most progressive electricity networks and facilitates changes to how Ireland’s electricity is produced and consumed. They are committed to supporting Ireland’s target of supplying 40% of electricity from renewable resources by 2020. They recently launched their Innovation Strategy which sets out how they will meet the challenges of the changing energy landscape, deploying new technology, engineering, and innovation tools to facilitate the transition to a low carbon future. The strategy focuses on connecting renewables, boosting customer engagement, further developing the electrification of heat and transport, optimising the current network infrastructure, creating flexibility within the network, making the network more resilient and driving operational excellence across the organisation.
