Since ESB was established in 1927, it has always endeavoured to bring light and energy to the people it serves, allowing individuals and communities to fulfil their potential in every walk of life.
This is achieved not only through the provision of critical energy infrastructure, but also through ESB's contribution to the economy in the form of investment, taxes, dividends and jobs.
As a strong, diversified, vertically integrated utility, ESB operates right across the electricity market: from generation, through transmission and distribution to supply.
Change is the nature of the business in which we work. The only option is to adapt, advance and thrive. In ESB, innovation is about developing the energy solutions of the future by constantly asking questions, collaborating with other companies and harnessing the ideas from our staff. The Innovation business unit includes ESB International, ESB Telecoms Ltd, ESB Novusmodus and Smart Energy Technologies focused on Electric Vehicles (ecars), Ocean Energy, Solar and Storage.
ESB is a business built on the strength of its people. We are proactively embedding new safety, sustainability, people development and corporate responsibility strategies within our operations. Our objective is to be a positive and effective partner for each of our stakeholders, our staff, our customers, the communities in which we operate and for our environment.
