ESB has completed a Tesla battery storage installation for Ardagh Glass in Scotland on a ‘no-money-down’ offer, providing a further indication to the UK storage market’s focus on C&I projects. The project was completed at Ardagh Glass’ packaging plant in Irvine, west Scotland, by both Ardagh and Ireland’s state utility. The 2MW battery system is aimed at helping Ardagh manage its onsite electricity costs. On top of providing peak shaving services for the company, ESB also said it would use the battery to deliver frequency response services to the grid via an operating platform from GridBeyond, the demand response specialist and aggregator formerly known as Endeco.
