Ardagh glass pioneer sustainability and flexibility initiatives with GridBeyond’s hybrid battery and DSR technology


“The grid-optimising platform, delivered by GridBeyond, enables Ardagh Group to participate in the National Grid’s Firm Frequency Response service. In practice, the battery reduces the plant’s reliance on the grid and when there is no requirement for the excess energy that has been stored by the Tesla battery, it can be delivered back to the National Grid, thereby reducing the CO₂ impact of energy demand.”

Bishwa Giri, Energy Manager for Glass Europe at Ardagh Group

Ardagh Glass is the leading global supplier of value-added, infinitely recyclable packaging solutions for the world’s leading brands.

Ardagh has 108 metal and glass manufacturing facilities in 22 countries, employing approximately 23,300 people, with sustainability being one of it’s core values.
