Benefits of Energy Storage Systems for Small-Scale Wind Farm Development in Latvia


The paper covers the main aspects and restrictions on siting small-scale wind farms in Latvia and benefits of using energy storage systems with small-scale wind farms. The restrictions of siting have been analysed. Grid connection restrictions are addressed as the main issues for small-scale wind farm development in Latvia. Two small-scale wind farm models with similar properties have been made and analysed within the framework of the research. The paper proposes the idea for maximising the production of small-scale wind farm in a small area site with high wind potential.
