Large-scale renewable energy grid integration with redox energy storage ('REI-STORE')

Objective

This combined RTD and Demonstration project will aid the integration of a 140 MW offshore wind farm through the provision of regulating power. The project provides a technology solution to the barriers limiting the value and future prospects of variable renewable generation. An innovative electromechanical energy storage technology, with a performance and cost structure better than that of pumped hydro, will be developed. Research will lead to a variety of innovations that will allow a 200MWh plant to be built for 90 EURO/kWh with a substantially improved efficiency and footprint compared to the pilot plant. The commercial and technical drivers for energy storage, as well as the expected dynamic performance, will be fully examined to determine the optimum configuration.
