Once the wind farms come online, the additional capacity will help Google reach its goal of purchasing enough renewable energy to match its energy consumption for global operations.
Grid operators need to do more than simply distribute the electricity generated by wind farms and photovoltaic plants. They also have to ensure a consistent quality of supply.
Most of the energy captured by large wind farms originates higher up in the atmosphere and is transported down to the surface where the turbines may extract this energy.
o make it more reliable and widely available, scientists have developed a two-prong approach to ensure wind power generation doesn’t die down as a renewable resource.
Vattenfall will purchase the new batteries from the BMW plant in Dingolfing, Germany and use them in all storage projects.
Wind turbines are known to kill large birds, such as golden eagles, that live nearby.
