In the Irish power generation market, thermal resources are a key source for power generation. Ireland is actively augmenting its energy generation capacity through clean energy sources such as wind and other renewable. The government has formulated numerous legislations and is actively promoting the development of renewable energy. The national indicative target for the renewable contribution to gross national energy consumption by 2010, given in the directive of renewable energy sources, has been achieved. The government is also providing various incentives and benefits for developers of renewable power plants in order to further promote clean sources of energy for future electricity generation.

Ireland has been promoting combined cycle plants in order to meet increasing demand for power generation and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. A number of thermal power plants are expected to come online during the forecast period. Over the forecast period, the market is expected to be driven by new investments in gas-fired generation and the upgrading of existing projects. Thermal installed capacity increased sharply in 2011 due to the completion of a number of thermal power plants. Nonetheless, over the medium- and long-term forecast period, the developing coal/gas price differential policy and rising carbon prices are expected to hinder the large scale construction of new thermal power plants.

Electricity Supply Board, Endesa Ireland Limited, Viridian Power & Energy and Airtricity are the top players in the market.

Aruvian Research analyzes the Power Market in Ireland in its research offering Analyzing the Power Market in Ireland. The report begins with a brief profile of the global energy industry and moves on to analyze the power situation in Western Europe. We analyze the power sources in the region as well as power consumption and generation statistics. We also include a geographic segmentation of the power market in Western Europe.

Moving on to the analysis of the power industry in Ireland we look at industry statistics, the power consumption in Ireland, installed capacity of power in the country as well as the regulations impacting the power industry.

The various power sources in Ireland are also analyzed such as thermal power sources, renewable energy sources as well as nuclear power sources amongst others. The power trade in Ireland is also looked at. Next we look at the power transmission and distribution network as well in Ireland along with a brief profile of the electric grid in the country. Major power projects in the Ireland are also analyzed.

The report wraps up with an analysis of the major industry players as well as the competition in the industry.
