Ireland’s electricity system is an unseen but hugely important national asset.

The balance sheet of the ESB at the end of last year showed physical assets at undepreciated cost of about €23.4bn, and tens of billions more in generation assets belong to other companies in the Republic. The system is operated on an all-island basis and the Northern Ireland assets add up to further tens of billions.
