Statkraft has completed an 11MW battery in the Republic of Ireland, set to participate in the DS3 flexibility market.
Moixa is to launch a new virtual power plant (VPP) comprising solar batteries and electric vehicles, set to provide frequency response services to the Irish transmission system operator (TSO).
Up to 140MW of capacity will be procured under the first ever tender for Ireland’s new frequency response and balancing programme, with projects to go live by September 2021.
Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has signed up to deliver flexible capacity to Ireland’s frequency system services programme and the emerging single electricity market across the island after partnering with demand side response provider Enernoc.
The ‘go-live’ date of Ireland’s integrated electricity market is to be delayed until October following concerns that the central and market IT systems needed to successfully operate the new system would not be in place.
