Wind and solar farm co-located and with a large battery system too.  Very good

Hi
Ecotricity are heading that way.

Quote
.In the last couple of weeks Ecotricity have been granted planning permission to build one of the country’s first grid scale battery storage projects on the Alveston site. The 10MW project will share the grid connection with these three new windmills, making better use of the available capacity - and enable Ecotricity to balance variations between supply and demand each half hour of each day.

I did hear a while back they were talking of solar on the same sites but can't find it now. (Found it)

On a smaller scale, the battery storage for fast EV charging points is of a similar ilk.

Swansea tidal would likely be a candidate for a battery, too?  Continuous power, during slack tidal flows, would help their end-users?

All good developments, that a few years ago were never thought possible/economic.
