Our solutions

Energy storage Our solutions The energy transition will depend on a significant increase in the production of renewable electricity, particularly generated by wind farms and photovoltaic panels. The specific feature of these two technologies is that they depend on weather conditions, implying variable production that cannot be managed. Hence a
