Using battery technology for capturing wind energy!
Tapbury Management is venturing into an innovative way of producing alternative energy. It plans to use Batteries VRB Power Systems Inc’s new type of battery technology – the ‘flow battery’ for capturing wind energy! Sounds interesting!
It is believed to bring “firmness” to an intermittent and not entirely predictable renewable energy source like wind — which is though emission-free, is often criticized for not supplying power during the hot, still, humid days!
The give a shape to the innovative venture, the maker of a new type of battery system, the Vancouver-based Batteries VRB Power Systems Inc. has signed a $6.3 million deal last week with the developer of a 39-megawatt wind farm in Donegal, Ireland, Tapbury Management.
