An energy container is a mobile hybrid power supply system built into a container. Much of the past use and development of energy containers has been for military purposes, but they can also be used for civilian purposes. In the article on page 6 the author presents an overview of the capabilities, market and applications of energy containers, with particular emphasis on the role of the wind turbines to be found within them.
