The Albioma-Mayotte Battery Energy Storage System is a 7,400kW energy storage project located in Mayotte. The rated storage capacity of the project is 14,900kWh.
The project will be commissioned in 2021.
The Albioma-Mayotte Battery Energy Storage System is being developed by Albioma.
The key applications of the project are renewable energy integaration, electric energy time shift and grid support services.
Albioma is the developer of Albioma-Mayotte Battery Energy Storage System.
This innovative project will provide an arbitration service for the grid operator by drawing electricity, especially during periods of strong sunshine, and reinjecting it later, during peak consumption times. The load transfer provides flexibility to the electricity system and increases the penetration of renewable energies on the Mayotte network and in particular solar power.
