What we do

Energy Storage Ireland

Energy Storage Ireland is a representative association for those interested and active in the development of energy storage in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

We work together to promote the benefits of energy storage to decarbonising Ireland’s energy system and engage with policy makers to support and facilitate the development of energy storage on the island.

Energy Storage Ireland Committee

Energy Storage Ireland is managed by a committee of members who meet to discuss key policy issues and coordinate work areas of importance to the industry. Each Energy Storage Ireland member has a representative on the committee and the committee is chaired by a nominated Energy Storage Ireland member. You can find out more about our members and chairperson in the membership section.

Energy Storage Ireland Working Groups

The Energy Storage Ireland committee establishes working groups to progress individual policy areas, respond to consultation responses and engage with policy makers such as:

  • The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU)
  • The Utility Regulator
  • EirGrid & SONI
  • ESB Networks
  • NIE Networks
  • The Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications (DECC)
  • The Department for the Economy (DfE)

Our current working groups are focused on policy areas such as market design, safety and engagement, grid integration, hybrid projects and long-duration energy storage.

Other Work

We carry out research and produce reports on the storage industry and energy storage in general to influence policy at a national level. You can see the reports we have published so far in our publications section.

We organise industry events, forums and workshops providing an opportunity for learning, skills development and networking and we communicate and explain the benefits of energy storage to policy makers, media and the general public.
