Natural gas is of key strategic importance to the Irish economy, representing 31 percent of Ireland’s primary energy mix and generating 52 percent of Ireland’s electricity.

We aim is to deliver an excellent, efficient and cost-effective service that benefits all customers. Ireland’s gas network is a valuable national asset which will play a major role in achieving a clean energy future in a least cost, safe and secure manner.

Natural gas is the ideal partner for renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Renewable gas can ensure that Ireland has a robust, renewable and sustainable indigenous energy source as part of our energy mix well into the future. Coupled with the long-term potential of hydrogen gas, the gas network can play a crucial role in supporting Ireland’s delivery of climate change targets.
