Solar + Hydrogen energy storage project to be built in French Guiana

Hydrogene De France (HDF) has announced an innovative large-scale energy storage project in French Guiana. The CEOG project will provide affordable, reliable and 100% renewable energy to more than 10,000 households in a region facing delivery issues. 

The project will be backed by a EUR 90 million investment from the company, investors, and leading banks.  Once completed, the power station will supply 55 MW of solar energy and 140 MWh of hydrogen energy, supported by battery storage. This will help improve the national electricity grid, by enhancing the supply and producing energy at a lower price than the current real cost of production in Western Guiana.

HDF is a global operator and currently has electricity projects in a dozen countries.
