The Irish Energy Storage Association (IESA) was established in 2017 to represent and advocate for the energy storage sector in Ireland. Our mission is to advance energy storage solutions across a wide range of applications, including the provision of system services, exploitation of arbitrage opportunities, and maximization of renewable energy benefits on the island of Ireland. We engage with various stakeholders and regulatory bodies to ensure the growth and integration of energy storage technologies.
