New energy storage plant could ‘revolutionise’ renewable sector

Posted on Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 by

Foundations for an energy storage plant in Ireland that could “revolutionise” the integration of renewable power into electricity supplies will be laid within weeks. The plant will use a motor-generated flywheel to harness kinetic energy from the grid at times of over-supply. This will then be released from submerged turbines at times of supply […]
