The CRU has today, 20th August 2021, published the draft Risk Preparedness Plan for electricity crises in Ireland.
Regulation EU 2019/941 on risk preparedness in the electricity sector sets out requirements for each EU Member State to ensure that consistent plans are in place to prevent, prepare for and manage crisis events that may result in a loss of electricity supply to customers. As Competent Authority for Ireland for this regulation, and in close collaboration with EirGrid and ESBN, the CRU has developed a draft Risk Preparedness Plan for electricity crises in Ireland.
The CRU welcomes comments on this draft, to be sent to Lucy Cradden (email@example.com) before 1st October 2021. The CRU will evaluate the comments received when finalising the draft, scheduled for publication in January 2022 as per Article 10 of the regulation. Alongside the draft Risk Preparedness Plan, the CRU is also publishing a separate response to the earlier consultation on the Identification of National Electricity Crisis Scenarios. The responses to this previous consultation are also summarised within the draft Risk Preparedness Plan, as per the regulation requirements.
