The Irish government has approved the holding of the country’s second renewables auction RESS2.
The delayed round, which was originally due to be held this year but has been delayed until 2022, is broadly similar to the first one that ran in 2020.
Energy Department DECC said the auction will increase technology diversity as it will be open to a range of generators, including provisions to couple renewables plus storage capability at project sites.
Onshore wind and solar will be the primary technologies that can take part.
The obligatory Community Benefit Fund (CBF) scheme established in RESS1 has also been maintained.
