May 28th, 2018, Published in Articles: Energize

HDF Energy will install a 140 MWh renewable energy storage system in French Western Guiana. Dubbed the CEOG project, this power plant will deliver 100% clean, affordable and reliable power continuously, day and night – with no fluctuations and at reduced costs – to an area of more than 10 000 households. The project is backed by a €90-million investment from the company, private investment partners and leading banks. The solution combines a 55 MW solar farm with the world’s largest renewable energy storage solution based on hydrogen and supported via secondary storage in the form of batteries. The CEOG project will be installed in Mana municipality. Connected to the EDF station in Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni, it will generate a fixed electrical output every day of 10 MW until evening and of 3 MW during the night. With the stable production of electricity guaranteed, the service provided by this project will be the same as that of traditional plants, the difference being that there will be no greenhouse gas emissions.
