Engie: energy storage system on Lifou island

(CercleFinance.com) - Engie EPS, a subsidiary of Engie, announces the commissioning of a 5 MWh storage system as part of the Lifou 100% renewable energy 2020 project developed by EEC Engie, another Engie subsidiary and the main energy supplier of New Caledonia.

This storage unit will provide Lifou Island with 100% green energy for several hours a day and will store the surplus energy supplied by the solar and wind power plants before feeding it back into the grid as required.

The innovative energy management system will also shut down diesel generators on the island when energy demand is fully covered by solar or wind generation, without any risk to grid stability.
