Partial Translation of the “Le Figaro/MSN post”:

“New installation in Corsica from COFELY Ineo (part of the GDF Suez Group) about 20 km from Ajaccio: the “Alata Solar Smart Grid”. This 4.4 MWc PV plant will be runned by the “Corsica Sole” operator. The major characteristic of this 15 million Euros investment/installation is  its «Smart Energy Storage & Management Solution”. The electricity produced at Alata will feed over 1000 homes in Corsica, where renewable energies already count for over 30% of the total energy production. The island targets 100% energy independance by 2050.

This storage system will compensate for the non-continuous aspect of solar energy: batteries located near the plant allow to keep/store electricity and to inject it into the grid whenever needed. Depending on the weather and the time of the day, the operator will be able to choose between using the electricity at once or storing it for a later consumption.”

 

So, can “Smart (Renewable) Energy Storage & Management Solutions” be the key to 100% energy independance of all islands in the world (including Japan)? What do you think?
