PSC is proud to become a member of Energy Storage Ireland (ESI), bringing with it the opportunity to collaborate with a strong network of forward-thinking companies recognizing the potential for energy storage in Ireland.


Energy Storage Ireland (ESI) is a representative association for those interested and active in the development of energy storage in Ireland and Northern Ireland, working together to promote the benefits of energy storage to decarbonizing Ireland’s energy system and engage with policymakers to support and facilitate the development of energy storage on the island.

ESI recognizes the potential for energy storage in Ireland by bringing together new technologies and innovations, not only as a means for achieving Ireland’s renewable energy goals but as a long-term sustainable and clean option that will help decarbonize Ireland’s energy system and support a strong, stable, electricity grid.

The Ireland connection

PSC has been in the Republic of Ireland since 2012, specializing in solar, wind, biomass, biogas and high voltage installation design. We have supported the renewables sector in Ireland with more than 2GW worth of renewable generation projects. Our people offer expertise in substation and HV installation design, grid code compliance studies, and electrical design that complement PSC’s internationally recognized suite of transmission and distribution network planning and operations services.

Working groups

The ESI committee establishes working groups to progress individual policy areas, respond to consultation responses and engage with policymakers. PSC’s Carlos Galvan is delighted to be joining the Grid Integration working group, working with like-minded people to foster sustainable, low emission development whilst maintaining system stability and reliability of electricity delivery.

Energy Storage is becoming a key feature on the electrical system, being part of ESI allows us to contribute to a strong energy storage market that is geared for future growth. As specialized consultants, we can play an important role in its expansion.”
