Innergex battery system commissioned in France

Innergex battery system commissioned in France

LONGUEUIL, QUE. — Quebec-based Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. has announced the commissioning of the nine-megawatt Tonnerre battery energy storage system in France.

Located at Joux-la-Ville in Bourgogne-France-Comte, in the vicinity of Innergex’s Yonne and Yonne II wind farms, the facility will provide grid stability to the French power transmission system, stated a release.

The energy storage system has been designed by EVLO, a subsidiary of Hydro-Quebec. The IEC 62933-certified and UL9540A-tested battery energy storage system enclosure uses lithium iron phosphate technology.

The system also uses EVLO’s Energy Management System.

Tonnerre has been awarded a seven-year fixed-price contract with the Reseau de Transport d’Electricite.

The facility will generate additional revenues that will vary based on prevailing energy pricing.

“Being Innergex’s first standalone battery project, the commissioning of Tonnerre is a considerable achievement for Innergex, and I am very proud of the incredible work of our team in France,” said Michel Letellier, CEO of Innergex, in a statement. “As the energy transition accelerates worldwide, zero-emission and carbon-free grids relying more heavily on renewables will require energy storage, grid stability and ancillary services.”
