The Network Development Plan (NDP) provides a view of how the gas network will develop over a ten year period. It is based on existing supply and demand for gas, as well as projections for growth in gas infrastructure and consumption. The document also examines system operation and consequent capital investment requirements. The ten year period facilitates the planning and development of the gas network, which can involve long lead times in the delivery of infrastructure projects.
The 2016 Network Development Plan was published on the 4th of October 2016.
Gas Networks Ireland has also produced a document which provides an overview of the methodology for forecasting gas demand and supply in Ireland.
