  • Pressure is growing on Eamon Ryan, the Minister for the Environment, Communications and Climate Action, to order an investigation into surging electricity prices.
  • The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU), which is responsible for the energy industry, monitors generators to ensure open and transparent competition, and the unit responsible can follow up any issues that it identifies.
  • Any inquiry will have to establish how that problem can be eased for households and employers in the short term.
