1 DS3 Ambitious approach to future network requirements Mo Cloonan Commission for Energy Regulation, Ireland 1

2 Overview Irish/N.Irish power system and policy objectives Operational challenges for Ireland- DS3 Programme New ancillary services arrangements - DS3 System Services- Interim and Enduring Slide 2

3 Wind Targets European Power Systems Ireland & N. Ireland seeing the impacts first Slide 3

4 Irish / N.Irish System Non-priority dispatch Priority dispatch System Demand 3-7GW Slide 4

5 Operational Challenges RoCoF Low System Inertia Lack of Synchronising Torque Frequency Nadirs System Ramping Capability Voltage Dip Induced Frequency Dips Reactive Power Shortfall Slide 5

6 Delivering a Secure Sustainable System (DS3) Delivering a Secure Sustainable System (DS3) 2011 DS3 Programme established 2014 High level design of DS3 System Services Meeting the RES Policy Objectives efficiently while maintaining system security Detailed Technical Analysis All Island Grid Study Facilitation of Renewables Ensuring a Secure Sustainable System Holistically considering technical, commercial and regulatory needs of the system Engaging with all industry over many years stakeholders Designed cognisant of I-SEM energy/capacity market design Slide 6

7 DS3 delivering increased renewables on the system Industry Performance System Services RoCoF 75% SNSP Operational Tools TSOs Operational Policies 7
