ACCIONA Boots Up 1st Hybrid Wind + Battery Storage Project In Spain

Spain’s leading infrastructure and renewable energy company ACCIONA has announced the beginning of operations for what the company is billing as the world’s first hybrid grid-connected wind project with battery storage.

Spain’s leading infrastructure and renewable energy company ACCIONA has announced the beginning of operations for what the company is billing as the world’s first hybrid grid-connected wind project with battery storage.

ACCIONA announced on Monday that it had started up a small yet pivotal project that for the first time combines a wind project with an energy storage system using two separate batteries. The project is small, as befits a pilot project of this sort, made up of a single 3 megawatt (MW) wind turbine and two batteries situated in separate storage containers — a fast-response 1 MW/0.39MWh Li-ion Samsung battery that can maintain 1 MW of power for 20 minutes, and a slower-response 0.7 MW/0.7MWh battery that can maintain 0.7 MW for 1 hour.

In addition to the pilot project, ACCIONA has developed simulation software that it will use in conjunction with the project.

The company aims to integrate grid-connected storage solutions and analyze other applications to provide electricity during periods of peak demand, which will increase the cost-benefits of the project.
