Abstract

Ireland has ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets for 2030, with a range of measures being proposed to reduce fossil fuel consumption in various energy sectors through electrification. This article analyses the costs and benefits of several sector-coupling measures using an energy system model with hourly scheduling of the whole energy system. The results indicate the potential importance of electricity based heating in the industrial sector, smart charging of electric vehicles, batteries and power-to-ammonia, as part of achieving the future targets.
