Energy Storage — Greater Use Of Wind Power & Benefits To Grid Operators -

The main priority of any utility or grid operator is to balance energy supply with demand in order to help maintain grid reliability. However, the wind does not always blow when demand is high. This is where energy storage can help. If energy demand suddenly increases and there is not enough wind power to meet the demand, the energy storage system can quickly come online and make up the difference in a very precise way. And if energy demand is low, but wind speeds are high, the energy storage system can absorb the access power and store it for later, harnessing the full potential and profitability of wind power.
