United Kingdom (TGW) - Eon UK is developing a giant battery to store electricity generated from renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power.
The prototype will be able to hold 1 Megawatt of electricity for four hours - the equivalent of 10 million AA batteries.
"The storage system will also help the development of localized generation - for example, a school with solar panels can store the power generated at weekends and use it when the kids are back in school."The company plans to invest $55.5 million in the project.
