The potential effects of high levels of wind generation on the economics of other generators needs further research. 3 SECURITY OF SUPPLY EU policy on energy security is developing in the light of changing circumstances. The extension of the current arrangements for co-operation in the event of a shortage of oil to the gas market is important for Ireland. It is to be welcomed that the EU is also developing clear rules on gas transmission through other member states. Domestic security of energy supply requires that the Corrib gas field is brought to production as rapidly as possible.

While the costs to Ireland from the inappropriate configuration of EU policy may be small, the potential costs to the EU economy as a whole are likely to be significant. The danger that a mismatch between national environmental policies could impose unnecessary costs on fellow EU members needs to be considered. This possibility could militate against the development of a common market in electricity. In particular, unwise environmental policy in the UK could have negative spillovers for Ireland.

The effect of this scheme is to reduce substantially the uncertainty facing investors in the sector and the result is a very significant rate of investment in new wind generation.
