Ramboll has received a contract to assist the Irish Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) over the next four years with consultancy services and assignments that will contribute to Ireland’s exploration of more sustainable energy resources.
The contract has a value of €5.4 million, Ramboll informed.
The contract will cover assignments within several technical energy areas, including gas and electricity infrastructure, sector integration, renewable energy, low carbon technologies and energy efficiency.
Ireland is a fast-growing economy with a large share of wind electricity and an increasing gas infrastructure. The Irish government and decision-makers have a continuous interest in exploring and developing more sustainable energy resources to reduce dependency on oil and meet climate targets for carbon emission reduction.
“We are very proud to receive this contract and work closely with our client on strategic assignments that will support Ireland not only become greener in terms of energy resources but also help utilizing these resources in a smart way across the sector. The client has a great respect for the Scandinavian renewable energy field – especially on wind, solar, carbon storage, and waste-to-energy. Therefore, it is of great interest to bring the Nordic experience into play and we are happy to share the knowledge we’ve gained from previous projects,” said Charlotte Seidenberg, project manager, Energy Strategy and Planning.
CRU is an independent energy regulator, maintaining security of energy supply and promoting generation and transmission of sustainable energy solutions among utilities and suppliers. CRU aims to adapt to more green energy solutions in their gas and electricity infrastructure.
