Ireland’s Gas Network – A vital national asset

Gas Networks Ireland (GNI) has published ‘Ireland’s Gas Network – A vital national asset’, a comprehensive and accessible report, relaying key facts and figures relating to Ireland’s gas network.

Delivering natural gas safely and securely to Irish homes and businesses for over 40 years, the gas network, a €2.7bn asset, generates 52% of Ireland’s electricity and delivers 31% or Ireland’s primary energy needs. Today, it serves over 705,000 customers in 22 counties around Ireland.

As Ireland’s energy system continues to evolve, and energy demand grows, the role of the gas network has never been more relevant. Its resilience and reliability ensures it will play a key role in this transition to a cleaner energy future for Ireland.

At Gas Networks Ireland, our ambition is that the gas network will be net zero carbon by 2050. As the company responsible for developing, operating and maintaining the network, we are committed to working with all stakeholders and to maximising the contribution of the network for today and for the future.
