By Peter Hinson

The British Wind power Association's twenty first Annual convention, aptly titled Wind energy Comes of Age, celebrated the successes of the wind power undefined, the quickest transforming into power expertise on this planet, and seemed to the long run with the improvement of the offshore zone. EC DGXVII gave the eu standpoint and this used to be through a robust reaffirmation of the united kingdom government's dedication to renewable strength applied sciences from the Minister for the surroundings. The papers offered on the convention tested vital components equivalent to: the strategies essential to advance the offshore undefined; tips on how to elevate the contribution of wind to the power industry; persevered advances in expertise, expanding potency and lowering bills; the influence of the recent electrical energy buying and selling preparations and eco-friendly buying and selling; public affairs and family and the position of the media. BWEA21 used to be the main winning BWEA convention thus far, strongly reinforcing the confident outlook of the at huge, and power for development from the advance of offshore wind power. those complaints are an immense resource of knowledge to all people with an curiosity in renewables and wind strength.

DHART Centre for Energy Policy and Technology, Imperial College, UK INTRODUCTION Intermittent forms of energy production, particularly renewable sources such as solar and wind power, often require energy storage to be economically and practically viable. One form of energy storage that is under consideration is the use of hydrogen - produced via electrolysis of water in many cases- which can be both economic and very clean.

Thus, energy storage makes variable renewable sources more viable, and adds to their economic value. An energy storage system used for the integration of renewable energy sources would require megawatts of power, with storage capacity in the 2 to 4 hour range. The energy storage system would typically go through a discharge/charge cycle once or twice a day, mainly during weekday peaks/troughs. 3 STORAGE TECHNOLOGIES FOR UTILITY APPLICATIONS The direct comparison of storage systems is difficult since different types operate using different principles.

It is in this type of application that the flywheels strengths are fully utilised. 7 OTHER APPLICATIONS As stated above Flywheels are ideal for dealing with cyclic load variations such as the case described above. However they are also being used in the power quality market where large amounts of power are required very quickly for up to 50 seconds. Typical of this type of application is in use at URENCO Capenhurst where a Flywheel system is used with a Siemens SIPCON interface to eliminate voltage dips from the supplies to one of our Uranium Enrichment plants.
