Electrifying Irelands heating system through the installation of heat pumps could increase power costs by up to 46% a research paper has found
The study titled decarbonising heat through electricity, costs, and benefits of Irish power system from The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) showed that electrifying 20% Ireland’s heating systems would increase the power system costs by 30%, suggesting that solar pv panels should also be considered for the install to minimize the electricity costs that will come with heating your business/home.
