The funding will support further study of smart grids – electricity networks based on digital technology that allow two-way communication. This makes analysis of usage possible, which helps to reduce consumption. Meters that facilitate the grids will be introduced to Irish homes in 2017. According to Communications Minister Pat Rabbitte, "Ireland is at the leading edge in this area of the energy systems catching up with developments in the telecommunications area for smarter use of energy".
