March 13 (Bloomberg) -- Toshiba Corp. supplied batteries to a Kyushu Electric Power Co. project on two remote islands south of the Japanese mainland that seeks to demonstrate technology to store energy generated from wind and solar power plants.

Two- and three-megawatt systems using lithium-ion batteries were delivered to Tanegashima and Amami Oshima, the Tokyo-based electronics maker said today in a statement. Toshiba has also won an order from Tohoku Electric Power Co. for a 40-megawatt storage system, according to the statement.
