European 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.
