DEVELOPMENT OF SOLAR PV WITH PUMPED-STORAGE POWER STATIONS CONNECTED TO THE CORSICAN GRID
The STEPSol company is striving to design and develop micro-STEP* systems (<1MW) in Corsica next to watercourses. They must be reproducible, marketable, of an acceptable size for the environment and available land, and they must exploit locally available skills.
The STEPSol demonstrator project follows after the STEPSol R&D project funded by the Corsician regional authorities. This demonstration phase of the project will be used to validate the technology under real operating conditions. A future showcase for the system, this demonstrator will providing a starting point for its development in Corsica and abroad in the long term.
STEP*: French acronym for pumped-storage power station
