Can Storage Expand Wind's Share of the Energy Mix?

Can Storage Expand Wind's Share of the Energy Mix?

Leading wind turbine manufacturer Vestas is looking toward energy storage solutions in a bid to improve wind power economics and grid integration. “Vestas considers the combination of wind with storage as an enabler in lowering the levelized cost of energy (LCOE), improving project returns and expanding wind’s share of the energy mix further,” Jorge Magalhaes, senior vice president, power solutions, Vestas Wind Systems, told Renewable Energy World. “In that regard, our experience in system controls and grid integration gives us a strong foundation to optimize the combined output of a wind park.” According to Magalhaes, the company’s goal is to “build know-how” in order to offer optimized turnkey solutions for technology-agnostic integration of energy storage or solar to wind turbine generators. Although batteries are the first technology to come to mind in considering stat...
