A single modern wind turbine can generate up to 6 Mega Watts, so 100 Mega Watts isn’t all that impressive........

A “Megawatt” is a measure of instantaneous power.

A “Megawatt-hour” is a meaningful measure of energy for storage in batteries.

So “Over 100 megawatts of [battery] technology deployed throughout the world,” is a meaningless statement.
