Portland General Electric (PGE) and NextEra Energy Resources are planning to construct a new energy project in Eastern Oregon, described as the “nation’s first major energy facility co-locating wind, solar and battery storage”.

The Wheatridge Renewable Energy project will combine 300MW of wind generation, 50MW of solar, and 30 MW of battery storage, which will be the largest storage facility in the state of Oregon.

The wind generation will come from 120 wind turbines, manufactured by GE Renewable Energy. “The specific equipment to be used at the associated solar farm and battery storage facility is still to be determined, the project partners said.

Mitsubishi to supply parts for (another) ‘world’s largest energy-storage system’

Japanese electrical manufacturer Mitsubishi Electric has received an order from the Chiyoda Corporation to provide its BLEnDer RE energy management system to monitor and control a 240 megawatt/720 megawatt-hour lithium-ion battery system at Kita-Toyotomi Substation in Teshio, Hokkaido.

Upper Hokaido, with favourable winds and abundant open land, is well suited to wind turbines, but there are fears that the associated fluctuations in power output will increasingly disrupt the balance of electrical demand and supply.
