NEC Energy signs contract for 100 MW of energy storage in Northern Ireland

NEC Energy Solutions Inc. agreed to provide 100 MW of energy storage for Gore Street Energy Storage Fund PLC and Low Carbon Technology Ltd. in Northern Ireland.

The two 50-MW storage projects in Drumkee, County Tyrone, and Mullavilly, County Armagh, are under construction and expected to be completed and commissioned in the first quarter of 2021.

NEC Energy will provide engineering, procurement and construction services as well as end-to-end grid storage solution and control systems. The projects are also expected to derive revenue from the new Delivering a Secure Sustainable Electricity System, or DS3, program.

"Northern Ireland has made tremendous progress adopting renewable energy," said NEC Energy CEO Steve Fludder in a press release. "Last year 44% of electricity consumption was generated by renewable resources. This easily beats Northern Ireland's renewable target of 40% and occurred one year ahead of its 2020 deadline. Energy storage, via the DS3 program makes more of this possible."

The DS3 market comprises both fixed and standard contracts in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. It aims to help Ireland meet the target of 75% nonsynchronous and renewable power across the island.
