Ireland Region Level 1 Locational Constraints for the 2026/27 T-4 Capacity Auction.

The CRU is today, 27 June 2022, publishing letters which it issued to EirGrid and ESB Networks, directing them to give a grid connection offer to any applicant located in the Ireland Level 1 Locational Capacity Constraint Area, that is successful in the T-4 Capacity Auction for 2026/27, taking into account certain requirements and considerations.

These letters are being issued by the CRU given the possible shortfall of capacity in Ireland in 2026 and 2027 that is outlined in the Generation Capacity Statement 2021-30.
