Emerging Technology and R&D

We engage with external stakeholders, technology developers and consultants, energy start-ups, research organisations and staff across ESB to analyse and assess emerging technologies across power generation, flexibility, cross - energy and cross industry. Emerging technology is assessed under a range of criteria including technology readiness levels, commercialisation prospects, key market insights and our interaction with each technology.

Our research and development (R&D) activity plays a key role in shaping the future of both the electricity industry and our business strategy. Our R&D Strategy seeks to ensure our approach continues to be effective and efficient in maintaining competitiveness and driving new growth opportunities in a rapidly changing marketplace.
