The 100 MW AES Energy Battery Energy Storage Project is a 100,000kW energy storage project located in Ireland.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2014.
The 100 MW AES Energy Battery Energy Storage Project is being developed by The AES. The project is owned by Government of Ireland (100%).
The key applications of the project are frequency regulation, renewables capacity firming and renewables energy time shift.
Government of Ireland is the owner. The AES is the developer. AES Energy Storage is the technology provider for the project.
The 100 MW storage array will feature the company’s signature Advancion energy storage platform and may be added to AES’ existing 10MW Kilroot installation in Carrickfergus that was completed in January 2016. Equally, AES said, the 100MW could be deployed at the Ballylumford natural gas power station in Country Antrim, or split between Kilroot and Ballylumford.
