Alfen delivers mega energy storage system for Nuon29-06-2017
Unfortunately, sometimes wind turbines cannot be used even though it is a windy day. The energy that is generated is more than the power grid can absorb and gets lost. This problem is now being solved at Nuon’s Prinses Alexia Windpark in Zeewolde, the Netherlands. Dutch company Alfen developed a mega energy storage system by connecting a large number of BMW car batteries. The system stores the surplus of energy so that it can be used when the grid requires the power at a later moment in time.
