SONI (Electricity System Operator for Northern Ireland), along with our colleagues at EirGrid, have published the All-Island Ten Year Transmission Forecast Statement 2019.
The joint publication describes and presents the following;
SONI is providing input into the important work by the Department for the Economy, which is currently developing a Strategic Energy Framework for Northern Ireland.
This will inform future energy policy and renewable targets, and the approach to facilitating growth in renewable generation.
In order to support this ambition and to tackle the climate crisis, investment will be needed in new renewable generation capacity and electricity networks.
The Transmission Forecast Statement outlines the opportunities for demand and generation connections in Northern Ireland.
