French abroad power business Albioma has actually activated a solar-plus-storage roof setup at the Stade de l'Est Jean Ivoula in Saint-Denis, in the Indian Ocean overseas area of La Reunion.

The project was chosen in a tender for storage space release in places not offered by grid network interconnectors. The purchase was wrapped up by France's Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) in 2016.

The 4,200-panel project has a generation capability of 1.25 MW as well as a lithium-ion storage space capability of 1.33 MWh. It is approximated the variety will certainly produce around 1.7 GWh of solar energy yearly-- equivalent to the yearly need from around 600 residences.

" In enhancement to the ensured power offered by the batteries, this nuclear power plant will provide power everyday throughout the end-of-day optimal in between 7 p.m. as well as 9 p.m.," stated Albioma. "The innovation released for this nuclear power plant makes it feasible to counter the recurring manufacturing of standard solar installments, hence ensuring as well as maintaining manufacturing throughout the day-- [regardless of] cloud [cover and also] climate adjustments-- as well as boosting its predictability."

Abroad profile

Albioma head of state as well as CEO Frédéric Moyne claimed the firm was pleased to be able to sustain the city of Saint-Denis de La Réunion in its dedication to the power shift. "The 12,000 m ² of photovoltaic panels set up on the roof covering of Stade de l'Est Jean Ivoula will certainly create 1.7 GWh of sustainable electrical power each year, straight infused right into ... Reunion," claimed the president.

The Paris-based tidy power business, which runs in French abroad areas plus Mauritius and also Brazil, appointed the arena project in 2014. The business was likewise chosen by the CRE to create a 7.4 MW/14.9 MWh solar-plus-storage project on the French Indian Ocean island area of Mayotte. Albioma runs practically 180 nuclear power plant and also has about 100 even more incomplete, consisting of 9 that include power storage space components.

In yearly outcomes released last month, the power business mentioned a goal to accomplish an 80% renewable resource payment in its generation profile, primarily thanks to strategies to transform all its thermal power centers in French abroad divisions to work on biomass, with job having actually currently begun on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. The business intends to spend EUR450-650 million approximately 2023.
