The Commission for the Regulation of Utilities (CRU) met with the Tipperary Energy Agency and Community Power recently in Cahir. The discussions focussed on the future implementation of supports and regulation to engage citizens, SME’s and communities in the generation of energy from renewable resources and preparing Ireland for a decarbonised energy future. A number of different case studies were discussed in an open and frank exchange that sought to improve understanding and engagement between the regulator and the customer facing experts in the Tipperary Energy Agency.
Our CEO Paul Kenny said “The five senior members of the CRU who visited are very focussed on the regulations to support the decarbonisation of Irelands energy systems in a manner that ensures security of supply and as low a decarbonisation cost as possible, as is their mission. It was refreshing to see the engagement on the various opportunities and challenges that must be overcome by all stakeholders to achieve this.”
