The Electricity Association of Ireland is delighted to support this roundtable discussion on the challenges of replacing fossil fuels with renewables. These challenges are growing and increasingly co-dependent on each other.
The series of Policy Eye roundtables support greater communication, understanding and collaboration on the vision of a decarbonised electricity system for Northern Ireland. Power generation companies face substantial uncertainty as they support increased renewables on the energy system. Sustained, regular and meaningful engagement with regulators and government through events such as this roundtable discussions is needed to develop a shared vision for how to completely phase out fossil fuel usage by 2050. The electricity sector is up for this challenge and looking forward to the discussions ahead.
