The world’s first hybrid wind park able to deliver energy at a constant rate over 24 hours or at a rate matching the market exactly (i.e. delivering most when prices are highest) was opened today with a ceremony attended by the Minister-President of the German State of Brandenburg, Matthias Platzeck.
The plant does that by producing hydrogen when they don’t want to feed in all their electricity to the grid with a 500 kw electrolyser. Then they fire a gas turbine to get back the electricity when the market price is higher.
Congratulations to Enertrag for pulling off this interesting innovation.
