Irish energy company Strategic Power Projects has gained go-ahead to build an energy storage system (ESS) in Dunnstown, County Kildare. The €140 million facility will be the single largest battery application in Ireland with over 200 MW in capacity, according to the company.
Strategic Power Projects has been developing its renewable and battery business and partnered with asset management firm Gresham House in October 2021. The two have committed to develop a solar and storage portfolio with a combined capacity of over 1GW.
The proposed facility situated at Dunnstown is part of this partnership agreement.
Strategic Power said building work will begin as soon as connection to the grid has been achieved.
