A giant battery has just gone online in West Texas. It regulates the supply of wind power into the grid there. This has great implications for all large scale renewable energy systems.

Canberra receives most of its Greenpower as wind power, I believe. A large battery installation might replace a natural gas plant for load balancing. Comments from the more knowledgable please!

"Built for energy giant Duke Energy by local start-up Xtreme Power, the array is the biggest and fastest battery in the world. It can deliver 36 megawatts of wind power to the grid over a period of 15 minutes."
