Welsh hydro power station plans to beat grid volatility with creation of battery storage facility

Wales could see the creation of a battery storage facility alongside its Dolgarrog Hydro Power Station in the Conwy Valley, if current owner, Innogy Renewables UK Ltd, are successful in their proposal.

Innogy Renewables UK Ltd want to build the 5MW battery storage plant on an existing sustainable brownfield site located alongside its power station, and hope to be able to offer a fast response solution to current power grid volatilities.

Proposals for the battery storage development state that it will assist with reducing the risk of power cuts, will provide a fast response solution to current system volatilities and secure future supplies, and will also support the UK as it moves towards achieving its carbon reduction targets.

An Innogy Renewables’ spokewoman said: “This is to install an energy storage container which could have a battery storage capacity of up to 5MW. This kind of infrastructure could offer the opportunity to store surplus electricity for use at times of high demand and we await planning decision before considering our next steps.”

Carbon Proton Battery Stores As Much Energy As Lithium Battery In Lab Tests

“Will anything match lithium-ion batteries for energy density?” is a frequently repeated question. It’s certainly not in the cards in the next few years. But the research coming out of Australia’s RIMT University in Melbourne says that one day, it’s possible – with a carbon proton battery. The research team have designed and built a…
