Second yellow power alert in two days


A yellow warning was issued on the electricity market for the second day in a row.

mber alerts you if the power supply is at risk and is an early warning signal when demand increases.

In a statement published online, the Single Electricity Market Operator (SEMO) said the alert is due to “a shortage of generation in Ireland”. The warning is “until further notice” in force, it said.

Yesterday Eirgrid, the national grid operator, said the warning means the buffer between electricity demand and available supply is less than optimal.

“This does not indicate a loss of power to customers,” it said.

This comes amid concerns over the development of increasingly power-hungry data centers and fears that there will be a fuel crisis as a result of the Russian invasion.

The war in Ukraine has led to a sharp rise in energy prices and significant instability in the energy markets.

Data centers are the biggest drivers of electricity demand on the national grid, and there have long been calls for a moratorium on their construction, while the government has been warned of possible nationwide blackouts.

The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) has imposed restrictions on access to the national grid amid fears of power outages due to the load on data centers from electricity.

Eirgrid has previously raised serious concerns about the impact of data centers and their ability to provide energy for the entire country, saying the facilities will account for 33 percent of all electricity consumption by 2030. Second yellow power alert in two days
