    Alstom and Saft provide EDF with an Innovative System of Energy Storage Batteries

    The Alstom-Saft consortium has signed a frame contract with the EDF group to supply an initial energy storage system using a container of Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, demonstrating the system’s ability to regulate the frequency of the grid. Alstom's MaxSineTM eStorage solution, connected to Saft's Intensium® Max 20M storage system, will be installed on EDF R&D's experimental "Concept Grid", dedicated to the development of grids and smart electrical systems. Located on the EDF site of Les Renardières south of Paris (Seine-et-Marne region), this is the first installation of its kind in France. The storage system and the power converter will be delivered in late 2014.
