      ABB adds PowerStore to Alaska

      Switzerland-based ABB is to install two 1MW PowerStore grid stabilisation generators on Kodiak Island in Alaska to enable the integration of more energy from an expanded wind farm to a microgrid. The work is being undertaken on behalf of the island’s resident-owned cooperative Kodiak Electric Association (KEA). ABB said the integration will also address stability challenges that will arise from a crane upgrade being undertaken to enhance port operations in Kodiak.

      Mainstream Trials Battery in Ireland

      Mainstream Renewable Power is to trial a large-scale power storage system at an Irish wind farm from September. The Wind-Storage Hybrid Study, with assistance from Enterprise Ireland, will look at integrating wind generation with a mixture of flywheel, synchronous condenser and battery technologies. The aim is to assess the commercial viability of installing 2MW of storage at an operational 10MW wind site, then running the resulting hybrid station in the current Single Electricity Market.

      UK Urged to Boost Hydro Storage

      The UK and Scottish governments have been urged to set up a new body to examine the potential of hydroelectric pumped storage to boost energy security. Trade body Scottish Renewables said Westminster and Holyrood need to “join forces to drive forward the only electricity storage technology which can operate on a commercial scale”. Initial plans are in place for investment in new and upgraded schemes in Scotland that could unlock more than £1bn of investment and create several hundred jobs during construction and operation.
