IDA, ESB warn on potential electricity cuts

December 28, 2006 14:46
The IDA and the ESB are warning that more power cuts are on the way unless we get more sources of electricity.

They say that Minister Noel Dempseey’s plans to upgrade the electicity network are too slow and that very soon we’ll struggle to cope.

IDA says the Government must accelerate the construction of electricity interconnectors to the UK to stave off major power shortages.

New electricity links to the UK are due to be completed by 2012.

However, the IDA says this plan needs to be fast-tracked as a top priority and put in place in advance of 2010.

The ESB has said Ireland is facing significant electricity shortages as early as next winter unless extra power stations are built immediately.

We should be exporting electricity
