Tesla Partners With Vestas To Power Wind Turbines

By Brian Spaen

Tesla’s portfolio on battery production for wind power generation is about to get even larger. Vestas Wind Systems announced a partnership with Tesla and additional companies to help with their 10 wind farm projects that will all utilize batteries. The move enforces the company’s focus on renewable energy storage.

Back in April, Vestas announced that they would be adding storage to their wind generation. They completed a test project in Denmark that combined both turbines and batteries. They’re already the biggest wind turbine manufacturer, and their plan is to take over the biggest market share in the United States.

“Across a number of projects, Vestas is working with different energy storage technologies with specialised companies, including Tesla, to explore and test how wind turbines and energy storage can work together in sustainable energy solutions that can lower the cost of energy,” Vestas said in a statement to Bloomberg.
