The largest NAS station stabilizes 51MW wind power
|Owner||Futamata Wind Development Co., Ltd.|
|Commissioning Operation Date||May, 2008|
- Japan decided to increase its proportion of new energy derived from such sources as solar, wind, and biomass to 3% of primary energy by 2010.
- The committee consisting of government and power company experts recommended developing hybrid wind-battery farms for solving potential grid instability when injecting large amounts of fluctuating wind generated power.
- Based on the recommendation, the owner, Japan Wind Development Co., Ltd., planned and developed 51MW wind farm in the area of the best wind condition in Japan.
- Achieving constant output by charging excess wind power during night when the demand is low and discharging charged energy during day time when the demand is high
- NAS contributes to the wind farm meeting the sever grid code of Tohoku Electric and selling the electricity to JEPX(Japan Electric Power Exchange)
