As I understand it, EirGrid bids for electricity supply on the grid every half hour to the suppliers. They are independent and have no security of supply. There is a weighted agreement for wind, and in times of flood, hydro takes precedence. Everybody has an agreement to be part of the bidding process and that is as far as it goes. It is a comparison and yet it seems to work.
