Helping you make sense of the energy and water sectors


Introducing the Energy Markets in Northern Ireland

The Irish energy markets are unique – there is a single electricity wholesale market across the island, yet different retail, regulatory and policy arrangements north and south. In addition, renewables penetration is among the highest anywhere in the world, and unusually for European markets, energy demand is expected to increase significantly over the coming decade. Our Introduction to the Northern Irish energy markets course provides a Northern Ireland focus on the gas and electricity markets, providing an end-to-end overview of market structures, key players and authorities, and trends in energy production and consumption. The session concludes with a look at the key challenges and opportunities facing the markets as well as emerging trends.
