Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action

Energy - Ambition and Challenges: Discussion

Dr. ?ine O'Grady:

I agree with Senator Dooley that it is a no-brainer and that it is supported in the climate action plan. There are a few regulatory and market hurdles that need to be overcome there on which work is under way, but it needs to be accelerated to enable the 2030 targets. The hurdles include the 120% cap on the insulation in the connection, allowing multiple legal entities behind a connection and the dynamic use of that connection so that two generations can come in and use that happily between the two of them to utilise that connection fully and get the full value out of the grid connection.
