    In this publication EirGrid introduced scenario planning into our grid development process as a way of ensuring the electricity grid continues to support Ireland's economic growth and expanding population in the face of an uncertain future. There are four scenarios outlining four possible futures for the supply and consumption of electricity out to 2040 which SEAI took responsibility of modelling of Low Carbon Living scenario.


    Low Carbon Living
    is associated with a shift towards a plan led approach to future wind energy development. As part of this scenario it's assumed that the government's NPF and the governments planned REPDF influence future patterns of wind energy development. Under this scenario investments are directed to sites deemed suitable for wind energy development under the new wind energy development guidelines.
