Navigant Research report emphasizes need for wind energy + storage projects

Published onFebruary 27, 2020

A new report from Navigant Research examines the use of energy storage for wind integration, covering existing and upcoming projects, the competitive landscape and expected market growth. The rise of combined solar plus storage projects is reshaping the energy storage industry, yet employing energy storage for wind integration has fallen far behind. According to the report, despite the limited number of combined wind plus storage projects, the pairing of these technologies is critical to achieving a greater reliance on renewable energy generation. “The links between wind and energy storage projects remain far less established than storage for solar PV as a result of both technical and economic factors,” says Alex Eller, senior research analyst at Navigant Research.
