Northern Ireland flips on its biggest energy storage project

Northern Ireland flips on its biggest energy storage project: The renewable energy investment & asset management firm Low Carbon and Gore Street Energy Storage Fund has switched on what is believed to be the ‘largest’ energy storage project throughout Northern Ireland.

The battery storage project located in Drumkee, County Tyrone, uses lithium-ion technology and has a volume of 50MW.

In cooperation with one more project, which is expected to be energised in December, the work is anticipated to support Northern Ireland’s ambitious 2030 renewable energy targets.

Northern Ireland is aiming for 70% renewable electricity by 2030.

Roy Bedlow, Chief Executive and Founder of Low Carbon, stated: “Often overlooked, battery storage paves the way for a renewable-powered future.”

Alex O’Cinneide, Chief Executive Officer of Gore Street Capital, commented: “We are delighted to announce the energisation of Drumkee, the largest energy storage asset on the national electricity grid, an important milestone for local climate change goals.”
