Dublin’s electricity infrastructure is ageing and reaching its end of life. Work must be done to transform and modernise the city’s electricity infrastructure so Dublin can continue to develop and thrive, while increasingly using power from renewable sources.

In this first phase, with their partners, EirGrid are installing over 50km of cables across the city. Upgrades will also take place in a number of substations to support Dublin’s electricity substations located around Dublin.

EirGrid have carried out studies to identify new cable routes that will link the following electricity substations to each other:

  • North Wall and Poolbeg
  • Finglas and North Wall
  • Poolbeg and Carrickmines
  • Two cables linking Inchicore and Poolbeg

Eirgrid are presenting twelve route options for these routes and we are seeking your feedback on our current plans.

The consultation period runs from Tuesday 28 March 2023 to Tuesday 23 May 2023. They want to hear your views, you can get involved in the consultation and provide your feedback online, in person or by email.
