ABO Energy Secures Green Light For Revolutionary Battery Projects In Northern Ireland!

ABO Energy Secures Approval for Groundbreaking 335MW Battery Projects in Northern Ireland!

ABO Energy has achieved a major milestone by securing planning approval for two significant battery energy storage schemes in Northern Ireland, with a combined capacity of 335MW/670MWh. These innovative projects are set to revolutionize the region’s energy landscape and play a crucial role in the transition to renewable electricity.

🔋 Enhancing Grid Flexibility:
These battery energy storage systems (BESS) will enhance the flexibility of the transmission grid, facilitating greater integration of renewable electricity. By storing power during off-peak times and delivering it when needed, these projects will ensure a reliable and resilient energy supply for homes and businesses across Northern Ireland.

🌿 Supporting Renewable Targets:
Energy storage is a key requirement for Northern Ireland to meet its ambitious renewable electricity consumption target of at least 80% by 2030, as outlined in the Climate Change Act. The Magherafelt Battery Energy Storage Scheme in Mid Ulster, with a capacity of 195MW/390MWh, and the Coolkeeragh Battery Energy Storage System in Foyle Port, providing 140MW/280MWh of storage, are strategically positioned to support this goal.

💡 Driving Economic Growth:
With a combined investment value exceeding £100 million, these projects will not only contribute to the energy transition but also provide a significant economic boost to the local economy. ABO Energy’s plans to develop £8 billion worth of schemes across the UK highlight their commitment to advancing modern, green infrastructure.

🌟 Leadership and Collaboration:
Patricia McGrath, ABO Energy’s Head of Project Development in Northern Ireland, expressed her gratitude: “Northern Ireland has huge potential to reduce its reliance on imported and expensive fossil fuels, but achieving that goal requires modern, green infrastructure. These projects, located at strategic points in the transmission network, will play a vital role in achieving the region’s renewable electricity target.”

She added, “I would like to thank our specialist teams in Northern Ireland and Germany for their efforts to bring the projects to this point. We are also appreciative of the professional approach taken by both Mid Ulster and Derry City and Strabane District Councils, who clearly recognize the urgent need to support Northern Ireland’s energy transition.”
