Shanghai offshore wind projects must be bundled with 4-hours of energy storage capacity

The Hangzhou Bay offshore wind competition plan was released by Shanghai DRC. The plan includes 4 offshore projects with a total capacity of 750 MW.

The plan also requires offshore wind power to be accompanied with more than 4 hours of storage capacity, while the storage power (MW) requirements will vary between 10 and 20 % of the offshore wind project capacity depending on the project owner’s peak shaving capacity in Shanghai. Further requirements concerning the efficiency and lifespan of the storage systems are also explained in the document.
