A former environment minister says the government needs to take action.

A new report is warning Ireland won't have enough electricity to meet demand for the next five winters.

EirGrid says it's due to the closure of older power plants - and a rise in demand for electricity.

The company says this winter will be challenging, with possible power outages.
