Lang, J.F. ; Electricity Supply Board

An outline of the development of electricity generation in the Republic of Ireland from the date of the establishment of the Electricity Supply Board in 1927 is given. Three distinct phases are examined: the hydro phase from 1928 to 1954, the peat phase from 1950 to 1965, and the current fuel oil phase commencing in 1964. The planned and probable developments during the next decade are discussed along with the criteria and methods used for forward planning.
