In November, Statoil announced that it had fully commissioned Hywind Scotland, the world’s first floating wind farm. The company said that it planned to add battery storage to the project in the coming year. Today, Younicos announced that it will be working with Statoil on the 1-MW/1.3-MWh battery that will be connected to the wind farm. According to Younicos, the purpose of the project is to “teach” the battery when to hold back and store electricity, and when send power to the grid, thus increasing value of the power.
