According to the SEAI, each finalist has demonstrated high levels of innovation with strong potential for replication. They have achieved significant energy reduction or clean energy deployment. The overall winners will be announced at a Gala Awards Ceremony in November 2023.
South East Energy Agency
The South East Energy Agency is dedicated to promoting sustainable energy practices and fostering a clean and efficient energy future in the south-eastern region.
SEEA collaborated with Zhyphen as part of the Interreg STEPS project to deploy an innovative Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) tailored for a dairy farm. The BESS enables time shifting of energy usage, providing cost savings through efficient energy management and acting as a single-phase emergency backup power supply during grid outages.
The estimated lifetime renewable energy generated or enabled through this project is a 35-40% electrical energy cost savings over the project’s 15-year lifetime.
This project stands out due to its flexibility in energy management, emergency backup power supply, scalability for future expansion, integration of multiple renewable energy sources, and off-grid capability, making it an exceptional battery energy storage system technology in the field.
