Although a portion of the grid is already “smart”, the growth of renewables and the new usages of electricity press to continue the modernization of the grid.
We are involved in a wide program of more than 20 demonstrators in France and in Europe, led by consortiums. The objective is to experiment the new solutions in all their dimensions : technological, business model and social acceptance. The results contribute to the industrialization roadmap.
The economic viability of the Smart grids solutions is a key concern to meet the energy transition expectations.
The roll-out of smart-grids has started and is accelerating. It enables to deliver quickly solutions, in a localized approach in order to maximize their value.
We support SMILE, Flexgrid and You&Grid, winners of the call “Réseaux Electriques Intelligents – REI” (Smart Grids). We invest around 40M€ in the first massive roll-out of smart grids solutions.
