The article focuses on a work programme by the single electricity market (SEM) Committee in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The programme will reportedly include an assessment of the barriers to coupling the Irish and British markets as well as managing an increase in wind generation on the power system in Ireland. An overview of the committee's annual report on the SEM in which the work programme was laid out is also provided.
