Toshiba to Supply Energy Storage System for Tohoku Electric

Nov. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Toshiba Corp. will supply an energy storage system for a pilot project by Tohoku Electric Power Co. to stabilize the flow of electricity generated by wind and solar power.

The battery system, which will have 20-megawatt hours of storage capacity, will be set up at a substation in the northern city of Sendai in Miyagi prefecture north of Tokyo, Toshiba said in a statement today.

The lithium-ion battery system is expected to be installed by February 2015, Tohoku Electric said in a statement yesterday.

In a similar pilot project by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd. was picked in July to supply a system with 60-megawatt hours of storage capacity to a Hokkaido Electric Power Co. substation.
