    E.on Develops Grid-Scale Wind-Integration Battery

    E.on has announced that it is working on a large-scale battery storage system in order to better integrate wind and solar into the grid. The M5BAT system will have a capacity of 5MW and combines a number of different technologies with the aim of optimising its performance, said E.on. It uses high-output lithium ion batteries for short-duration discharge, high-temperature batteries for medium-duration discharge, and lead-acid batteries for short- and medium-duration discharge.
