Upcoming EirGrid forum on DCCOPP

  • Ireland
  • Energy and infrastructure


Data centre operators and interested parties should note that Eirgrid has scheduled a forum for Q2/3 of this year to provide an update and discussion of information related to Data Centre Industry. Eirgrid updated the Data Centre Connection Offer Process and Policy (DCCOPP) in July 2020 and published a consultation paper outlining the potential future amendments to the areas of capacity allocation, MIC ramping, planning permission timeframes, data publication, and provision of system services and demand response. While Eirgrid have not issued an official response to the consultation paper, the responses received have been acknowledged in its Stakeholder Engagement Report 2020 as providing valuable insights. The forum is a valuable opportunity for industry players to participate in Eirgrid’s policy development process. Interested parties should watch out for the upcoming announcements regarding the forum. Eversheds Sutherland awaits with interest for Eirgrid’s updates on the DCCOPP.
