EirGrid Consulation on Charging Methodology
EirGrid Interconnector Limited ("EIL") is consulting on the proposed structure and content of the Charging Methodology of the East West Interconnector ("EWIC"). EIL is required to establish a Charging Metholology outling the methodology for applying for, determining access to and charging for the reservation and use of capacity on the EWIC. This requirement is under Condition 20 (8) of the Operator's licence issued to EIL.

Responses to the consultation should be recieved by close of business on 5 p.m. on Friday April 13th 2012 and should be directed to Mark Lane at EirGrid (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Given the geography of Ireland the Irish electricity system is relatively isolated compared to systems in mainland Europe and even the UK. However, there is some interconnection to the Northern Ireland system and a project to build an interconnector to the UK is under way.
