Florida Power & Light to build world’s largest battery storage system, close gas plants FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Energy Storage News:Major U.S. utility Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) is planning to build the world’s largest battery energy storage system adjacent to an existing solar power plant, with plans to roll out multiple other storage systems across the state.With the key proposed battery standing at 409MW capacity, the Florida energy company claims it will be four times larger than the largest battery currently operating worldwide. Furthermore, the system will help reduce fossil fuel usage and thereby accelerate the decommissioning of two neighbouring 1970s-era natural gas power units.The FPL Manatee Energy Storage Center will be powered by an existing PV plant in Parrish, Manatee County, and capable of distributing 900 MWh of electricity. It will start serving customers in 2021, with the batteries being used particularly during peak demand periods, thereby reducing the requirement for electricity from other power plants. It will be able to provide energy the equivalent of 329,000 homes for a period of two hours, saving FPL customers more than US$100 million in the process.The company has 18 solar power plants currently in operation and four more entering construction, but it is no stranger to solar-plus-storage, having opened the largest plant combining solar and storage at Babcock Ranch in Charlotte County in 2018, and the company is now also planning smaller battery installations and solar plants across the state. This, while carrying out efficiency upgrades to existing combustion turbines at other power plants, will help to replace 1,638 MW of traditional generating capacity.FPL’s two-decade-long modernisation programme has tended to involve replacing oil-based power plants with U.S.-produced natural gas units. However, it is FPL’s increased knowledge of how to optimise solar and batteries as well as the new technologies’ rapidly declining costs, that is allowing FPL to take on these alternative technologies simultaneously.FPL, which serves more than 10 million people, will also soon shut down its only remaining coal plant in Florida by the end of this year.More: Florida utility plans world’s largest battery combined with solar
highlights Mumbai: Batting all-rounder Vijay Shankar on Monday experienced a “dream come true” moment after being named in India’s World Cup squad and said he is learning the art of handling pressure in a mega event from IPL teammates like Bhuvneshwar Kumar.”I am extremely elated to be in the Indian WC team. This is like a dream come true. We have a few World Cup winning team members here at Sunrisers Hyderabad and I have spoken to them to understand what it feels like to play in a WC and then go on to win it. I have learnt a lot from them on the ways to manage pressure at such a large scale event,” said Shankar referring to his IPL teammate Bhuvneshwar. Vijay Shankar makes his way into ICC Cricket World Cup squad. The BCCI announces 15-member squad for World Cup. Ambati Rayudu and Rishabh Pant misses out. Shankar is expected to be used as a floater in the batting order, especially at number 4. With his “three-dimensional qualities”, the Tamil Nadu player took the slot which was speculated to go to Ambati Rayudu before his dip in form in the home series against Australia last month.Bhuvneshwar, who will be playing his second World Cup, too was elated.”I am extremely happy to be selected for the World Cup, the conducive English conditions will suit my strength and I am looking to make the most of it. Playing for SRH in IPL has given me the right match practice just before the mega tournament like World Cup,” he said.SRH team mentor and former India batsman VVS Laxman said Indian selectors have picked a strong squad.”The Indian team is a very balanced side and is one of the strong contenders for the title. I have closely monitored Bhuvi and Vijay in the nets while they were on SRH duties. They look in great shape and are raring to perform on a stage like World Cup. I can see these players contributing in team’s success in a major way,” said Laxman. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
