    Deepwater Project Combines Wind, Energy Storage

    Deepwater Wind aims to set another milestone for offshore wind. After building the first U.S. offshore wind farm, the Providence-based renewable-energy developer wants to build the first offshore wind facility with battery storage. The Revolution Wind project has nearly five times the energy capacity as the 30-megawatt Block Island Wind Farm. But this wind proposal also includes a 40-megawatt-hour battery-storage system designed by tech-innovator Tesla. Details, such as the size and number of turbines and the location of the storage system, haven't been finalized, as the project is one of several seeking to build in a federal lease area 12 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard.
