For those who follow this website's news and my blog, you’ve certainly noticed that I didn’t publish anything over the last few months. And it will unfortunately continue like this. I made an important professional commitment that do not allow me, for practical reasons, to continue my professional activities with Dupont Energy Consulting. To my clients: thank you for your continued confidence over the last two years. It was an exciting and fruitful time. See you elsewhere soon.

FIAMM installed its first Sodium-Nickel battery system for grid application in US. It aims to smooth out minute-by-minute the power output of a 1.2 MW photovoltaic plant located 5 km away. Although relatively small, 402 kW and 42 min at full capacity, this project gives FIAMM and the utility Duke Energy, North Carolina, the opportunity to test the system under real operating conditions.
