As the installed worldwide wind energy capacity increases about 30% annually and Kyoto protocol that came in force in 2005, wind penetration level in power system is considered to significantly increase in near future. Due to increased penetration and nature of the wind, especially its intermittency, partly unpredictability and variability, wind power can put the operation of power system into risk. One of the possible solutions can be an addition of energy storage into wind power plant. This paper deals with state of the art of the Energy Storage (ES) technologies and their possibility of accommodation for wind turbines. Overview of ES technologies is done in respect to its suitability for Wind Power Plant (WPP). Services that energy storage can offer both to WPP and power system are discussed. Moreover examples of already existing installations are shown
