Energy Storage Moves Wind to Baseload Power

Energy Storage Moves Wind to Baseload Power

LONDON -- The key to further wind sector success may be the ability to provide baseload power. New solutions based on lithium batteries can deliver convincing foundations to balance wind's variability. For more than two decades, practitioners have been developing control solutions to make operating wind energy plants more efficient. One of the latest projects commissioned by a Chinese operator was dedicated to energy storage. In China, feed-in regulations stipulate that 10 percent of the power installed from wind energy plants must be available via energy storage at any time for two hours. Norbert Hennchen, managing director of Freqcon in Walsrode, Hannover, Germany says lithium batteries possess the greatest technological potential with regards to saving energy, and therefore the ability of renewable energy sources to provide baseload power. The topic of storing renewable...
