GDF SUEZ Tests Eos Energy Storage System

November 20, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

EosEuropean power producer GDF SUEZ has purchased Eos Energy Storage’s zinc hybrid cathode (Znyth) battery system. The sale marks the next phase in Eos’s pilot demonstration program, after third-party testing with DNV GL, and sets the stage for commercial deployment in European markets.

Eos’s Znyth storage product, the Aurora, is a containerized MW-scale DC battery system.

GDF SUEZ will install and test the battery system at its new Batteries Lab in Belgium, where it will evaluate the performance of the system under a range of applications, including facility energy management, integration of distributed solar photovoltaics, participation in grid balancing markets and energy arbitrage in wholesale markets.

GDF SUEZ joins other energy companies – including NRG, Con Edison, National Grid, Enel, American Electric Power and Public Service Company of New Mexico – as a participant in Eos’s Genesis program, a collaborative effort to optimize, demonstrate, and deploy Eos’s Aurora energy storage system.
