About EirGrid Group
At EirGrid, we develop and operate the national electricity grid, so that everyone has power when and where they need it. The grid takes electricity from where it is generated and delivers it to the distribution network, operated by ESB, which powers every home, business, school, hospital, factory and farm on the island. We also supply power directly to some of Ireland’s largest energy users. We are responsible for a safe, secure and reliable supply of electricity: now, and in the future.
To do this, we forecast when and where electricity is needed across Ireland: hour-to-hour, day-to-day, and year-to-year. We work to ensure there is enough electricity for industry to prosper, and for employment to grow. Our work is essential today, as well as being a crucial investment for future generations.
