The Les Cedres Solar PV Park Battery Energy Storage System is a 9,000kW energy storage project located in Reunion.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was commissioned in 2015.
The Les Cedres Solar PV Park Battery Energy Storage System was developed by Akuo Energy. The project is owned by Akuo Energy (100%).
The key applications of the project are renewables capacity firming and renewables energy time shift.
Akuo Energy has delivered the battery energy storage project.
The system includes a programmable logical controller (PLC) that helps balance power generation with load requirements, dispatching the power to the grid according to power demand and quality requirements.
