By Carmen

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.

Description

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.

Contractors involved

Government of Ireland is the owner. The AES is the developer. AES Energy Storage is the technology provider for the project.
