Statkraft participated in what it says was the largest dispatch of energy from battery storage to the Ireland grid to-date, on 14 July.

Ireland today has around 650MW of energy storage online but this has mostly been used in frequency response services for system stability rather than helping security of supply, Statkraft said.

The island faces several challenges in securing adequate supply, including increasing unreliability of legacy power plants, high demand and the growth of energy-consuming data centres, which grid operator Eirgrid has estimated could account for 29% of energy usage by 2030.
