Storing renewable energies, an innovation to improve the performance of the electrical network
The key to the project lies in the power converter, which interfaces between the batteries, which run on direct current, and the grid, which runs on alternating current. It converts the energy stored in the batteries into electricity distributed over the lines and contributes to the stability of the grid.
The converter along with the filter, precharge device and cooling system will be arranged in two containers.
Work will begin in June 2020 for implementation of the first tests as early as June 2021. Equans will then coordinate the construction phase.
