Although energy production and energy use were clearly separate issues just a few years ago, they are now converging, hence the importance of developing smart grids and self-consumption.

 

We have spent several years developing expertise in smart grids and self-consumption. Energy production and energy control have always been our core business. Our research center conceives innovative solutions, and our engineering consultancy department assists clients with developing their projects.

Self-consumption using renewable energy is already the norm in Germany. In France, we are taking part in the first large-scale projects, including the construction of 20 standalone power systems for high schools in the Centre region.

We are also working on the development of smart hybrid grids that are capable of integrating the electricity produced from conventional and renewable energy sources and storage, especially in the Global South.
