The Energy Storage Ireland 2021 conference will be the first event of its kind for the energy storage industry in Ireland and Northern Ireland. It will take place virtually over 2 days from Wednesday 23rd June to Thursday 24th June, in collaboration with our partner, the Demand Response Aggregators of Ireland (DRAI). The theme of the conference will be Delivering the Technologies to Support Ireland and Northern Ireland’s Renewable Ambitions.

Ireland and Northern Ireland have set renewable electricity targets of at least 70% by 2030. Energy storage and other enabling technologies will play a central role in integrating this level of renewable electricity. The story of this sector is only beginning with the first battery storage projects beginning operation on the island and other new technologies on the horizon.

Throughout our two day conference, expert speakers in our panels will highlight how important technologies like energy storage and demand side response are for lowering carbon emissions over the next decade. Our panels will also outline the key development opportunities and barriers that will need to be overcome to deliver these technologies on the scale that is needed for 2030 and beyond.
