The SGRE system heats volcanic rocks to 750C using a resistance heater and blower, which can be powered by wind turbines. The heat can then be used to generate steam. SGRE notes the pilot can store 130 MWh of energy for up to one week. SGRE claims the technology offers a second-life option to existing power plants as it uses standard components.
SGRE is partnering with local utility Hamburg Energie -- which will market the stored electricty -- and the Hamburg University of Technology on the pilot, which received funding from the German government.

The most recent award was the 232 MW Milligan project, located in Milligan County, Neb. For the project, Siemens will build 30 SG 4.5-145 and 36 SG 2.7-129 wind turbines. The 4.5-145 features a 71 meter or 233-foot long blade. With these recent orders, Siemens Gamesa eclipsed the 1-gigawatt mark for its SG 4.5-145 turbines sold worldwide. The other new projects are the 241 MW Coyote wind project in Texas, and 246 MW Oso Grande wind project in New Mexico. Coyote, located in Scurry County, Texas, will feature 48 SG 4.5-145 and 11 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines. Project completion is targeted for the summer of 2020.
The Oso Grande wind project will also utilize 48 SG 4.5-145 and 13 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines. Located about 43 miles southeast of Roswell, N.M., commissioning of this wind farm is slated for Q4, 2020.
The SG 4.5-145 offers a flexible power rating, from 4.2 to 4.8 MW, depending on site conditions, the company stated in a release. It is optimized for medium wind onshore locations to maximize energy production with low noise emission levels.
