Notrees Windpower Project receives upgrade by Duke Energy

One of Texas’ biggest wind-farms, the Notrees Windpower Project in West Texas has been operating with lead acid batteries since 2012, but will be completely replaced with Lithium-Ion batteries by 2016.

The company will be provided with Lithium-Ion batteries and associated battery management systems from their procurement and construction manager, Samsung SDI. Usage of lithium-ion batteries will increase storage efficiency and lower operation costs. The batteries will also allow for the rapid storage and release of energy required for management of the grid.

Younicos will provide energy storage management systems. The energy storage management systems will work with the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), which will allow the battery to store or dispatch energy when needed, thus providing a more stable supply of electricity to the ERCOT grid.

If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.


The UK National Energy Grid – A Story of Islands, Trading, and Energy Storage

As first seen in Energy Global, grid software acts as a modern-day map, helping to chart and navigate today’s energy grids; software engineers are tasked with carefully delineating how each region’s energy markets operate. However, looking more closely at energy markets makes clear how unique each market is – each defined by different topography, resources,…
