Ireland launches consultation on energy storage policy framework

By George Heynes

The Irish government has launched a consultation to help direct the development of a policy framework for energy storage.

As the renewable energy generation market continues to grow in Ireland there is an increasing urgency to develop energy storage solutions in a bid to provide flexibility to the energy market.

In a bid to incentivise the creation of energy storage in Ireland, the government is developing a policy framework to help deliver their objectives in this area of its Climate Action Plan which is targeting a proportion of renewable electricity to up to 80% by 2030.

These objectives include supporting the integration of high volumes of renewable generation by providing additional energy storage to raise its overall capacity for the national energy system.
