I propose to take Questions Nos. 215 and 216 together.
EirGrid have estimated that, in the 12 months ending September 2019, 35.2% of generated electricity has been from renewable sources. That figure consists of approx. 32% from wind energy, 2.5% from hydropower and 0.7% from other renewable sources. This does not include small scale and micro generation which could contribute up to 1% more to the total. Currently, offshore wind and solar represent less than 1% of total renewable electricity.
EirGrid are the Transmission System Operator for the national grid and operate the system in a safe and secure manner. Information on Ireland’s fuel mix for electricity generation is available on EirGrid’s website and updated on a monthly basis: http://www.eirgridgroup.com. This website also lists the installed capacity of each hydro-electric station attached to the transmission grid.
