Utilization of storage facilities installed in solar fields?
- Apr 20, 2021 4:11 pm GMT
In order to shift solar energy production to hours when there is no sun, large-scale storage facilities are installed and the solar field's output is doubled. What is the common use of these storage facilities during the winter when there is not enough sun to load the storage facilities? On the other hand, the efficiency of the main turbines goes up and down and is maintained precisely for the winter period. Is it not correct to use the idle storage facilities for the purpose of extending the operation of the turbines at night and reducing their operation at the peak of consumption? Is it right to use the storage facilities also as a reserve for stabilizing production?
