The peaking plants will be hydrogen-enabled, to be ready for running on green hydrogen when it is available. The two plants will provide a combined 200 MW capacity.

Dave Kirwan, MD of Bord Gáis Energy, said: “We recognise the current difficulties facing all consumers all across Ireland in relation to energy costs. Our focus is on protecting our customers as much as we can right now, while also using our financial strength to make investments that will protect them in the future.”
