SMM News: general Electric Renewable Energy has announced that it will provide British energy developer Wykes with installed capacity for 25MW battery energy storage system. The battery storage system will be deployed in conjunction with an existing installed capacity of the 60MW solar farm in Wykes's Chelsea Weston Renewable Energy Park.
The park also operates a wind farm with an installed capacity of 26MW, and Wykes plans to deploy a solar power facility with an installed capacity of 60MW after the deployment of the battery storage system, so as to bring its total installed renewable energy capacity to 146MW.
The company calls it Britain's first DC-coupled solar plus energy storage project, in which solar power facilities and battery energy storage systems share a common set of power conversion equipment. Wykes says this will help increase the overall power generation of hybrid energy systems, while optimizing costs and improving the reliability and flexibility of its systems.
