Boralex will soon commercially commission the Stockage de l’Arce project—its first storage project ever! Adjacent to our Vallée de l’Arce wind farm (30 MW), the project is located in the Commune of Chervey, France. The project, composed of a lithium-ion battery, has an installed power capacity of 2.16 MW and an energy capacity of 1.5 MWh.
This project will allow Boralex to provide ancillary services to the French power grid and participate in the European frequency control reserve market.
Boralex has initiated the project certification process with the French national power grid operator RTE (Réseau de Transport d’Électricité). The project is expected to be commercially operational before long.
