Using lithium ion batteries to even out renewable energy production

August 21st, 2012 by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Energy storage systems will make renewable energy more practical as fluctuating supplies of electricity from photovoltaics and wind power can be stored until use. At Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany, several pilot plants that include photovoltaic panels, small wind power plants, lithium-ion batteries, and power electronics are under construction to demonstrate how load […]
