Total Solar and Albioma have won a tender launched by the French independent administrative authority, the Commission de Régulation de l’Energie, to install two storage units. Complementing electricity production from fossil fuels, these storage units will be able to provide regular current in the event of a deficiency in the photovoltaic power supply. Up to 5% of the power of the EDM (Electricité de Mayotte) network, they will provide 30 minutes of autonomy to the island in the event of a total blackout. The first unit will be operational in March, and the second will be at the end of the year. It should be noted that the PPE (Pluri-annual Energy Plan) plans to multiply by 3 the production of electricity from renewable energies within eight years in the young French department. CRE is to launch a new call for tenders this year for the installation of ten other storage units.
