ESB Generation Project Delivery
ESB is progressing a pipeline of projects and acquisitions, including initiatives with our trusted partners, to deliver our Net Zero by 2040 strategy.
We believe this will be achieved through an integrated net zero carbon energy system approach involving:
Offshore wind (>30 GW) to generate the required primary energy
Green Hydrogen production capability (>15 GW)
Green Hydrogen storage in sub-sea salt caverns and depleted gas field storage (c. 90 days)
Backup dispatchable zero-carbon (Green Hydrogen) power generation (>10GW)
Between Q1 2022 and Q1 2024, ESB will have connected over 610MW of new capacity to the Irish electricity grid – contributing to Ireland’s security of supply and net zero energy transition. This represents:
