TotalEnergies Launches Battery-Based Energy Storage Site in France
TotalEnergies has launched the largest battery-based energy storage facility in France. Located at the Flandres center in Dunkirk, this site, which responds to the need for grid stabilization, has a power capacity of 61 MW and a total storage capacity of 61 megawatt hours (MWh). It is made up of 27 containers of 2.5 MWh, designed and assembled by Saft, TotalEnergies’ battery affiliate which notably develops advanced batteries for industry.
This project was selected as part of the long-term tender launched by the French Electricity Transmission Network (RTE) in February 2020, where TotalEnergies was awarded battery storage capacities in France. The full commissioning of the site follows the start-up of a first 25 MW unit in January 2021.
