Mon, 11/19/2018 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

A new lithium-ion battery energy storage facility connected to a wind farm in northern Germany has started operations as part of a research programme.

The BESS, connected to the Curslack wind farm, comprises 24 second life batteries originating from BMW electric vehicles.

The facility provides 720 kilowatts of output and 792 kilowatt-hours of storage capacity and is integrated with five wind turbines to “enable practical research to be conducted into the possibilities for the system integration of renewable energies”.
