Offshore Wind connects to battery storage a World first. #auspol #innovation #StopAdani #Batwind #ClimateChange time for #ClimateAction | jpratt27
Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company, or Masdar, and Norwegian multinational energy company Equinor, (formerly Statoil) have installed, and will soon begin testing, a new battery system designed to store electricity generated by Hywind Scotland, the world’s first commercial-scale floating wind farm.
The battery storage solution is the first in the world to be connected to an offshore wind farm. The project is designed to evaluate the capabilities of advanced storage technologies to optimise the release of electricity from renewable energy plants to transmission grids – from both a technical and commercial perspective.
