Our Research

The Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP) is the flagship programme of the UCD Energy Institute with €11m in funding, half from Science Foundation Ireland and half from industry. ESIPP brings together a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional research team in Ireland with expertise in electricity, gas, water and data, with the relevant industry partners to focus on building human capacity and to develop a national coherent research activity in ESI.

ESIPP brings together 5 different research institutes (UCD, TCD, NUIG, ESRI and DCU), along with Industry partners and collaborators, to build the capability needed to deliver an integrated energy system in Ireland. The collaboration is underpinned by a supportive policy system with active participation by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE), the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU).

Energy Institute Lead Researchers:  Andrew Keane, Eoin Casey, Frank McDermott, Terence O’Donnell, Julie Byrne, Paula Carroll, Donal Finn, Damian Flynn, Paul Cuffe, Federico Milano, Eleni Mangina, James O’Donnell, Lisa Ryan, Conor Sweeney, Geertje Schuitema and Eoin Syron.
