My Department published a consultation seeking input of all interested parties on a review of the energy security of Ireland’s gas and electricity systems on 19 September 2022. The consultation document was accompanied by a technical analysis carried out by Cambridge Economic Policy Associates. The deadline for submissions was 28 October 2022 and 457 submissions from individuals and organisations have been received. All responses and submissions received as part of the consultation are being examined and given careful consideration.  

It is my intention to take a number of recommendations on the energy security of our electricity and gas systems to Government once the current review process is complete.
