The Electric Storage Company Announces New Jobs

The Electric Storage Company in west Belfast is expanding its team with 10 jobs in a £780,000 investment to help it meet the growing demand for renewable energy across Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and Great Britain.

The company offers a new service to domestic energy users, which gives them the tools to maximise energy produced from renewables such as solar or wind from their homes. Its customers can choose to use the energy generated whenever it is needed or trade it in the energy market through a provision of battery storage hardware and Internet of Things technology.

Invest NI recognises the increasing significance of the green economy as a key driver of growth and it is companies like The Electric Storage Company which are supporting Northern Ireland to play a pivotal role in encouraging a green sustainable recovery and in rebuilding our economy.

"We've worked with the company since it was established in 2017 and have supported it to invest in R&D to develop its data analytics platform, PARIS. This is helping to bring renewable energy to households across Northern Ireland with the potential to grow its business further in RoI and Great Britain. To continue this success, we’re now supporting the company to grow its team with specialised data analytical skills and expand its sales and customer support teams to help deliver a strong sales pipeline.

"Invest NI recognises the increasing significance of the green economy as a key driver of growth and it is companies like The Electric Storage Company which are supporting Northern Ireland to play a pivotal role in encouraging a green sustainable recovery and in rebuilding our economy.
