Renault is trying to create a ‘smart electric island' with electric vehicles, V2G, and energy storage

Fred Lambert for Electrek:  After embracing electric vehicles, Renault has also launched its own new energy subsidiary to develop energy storage and grid products.

The French automaker is now combining both efforts to help create a “smart electric island” with electric vehicles, V2G, and energy storage.

They are partnering with energy supplier Empresa de Electricidade da Madeira partner to “facilitate the energy transition” in Porto Santo island, Portugal.

The small island of ~5,000 residents is rolling out a program called “Sustainable Porto Santo – Smart Fossil Free Island” to get rid of all polluting source of energy.

Solar arrays and wind farms are already deployed on the island, but now they want to electrify the car fleet and add energy storage to the grid in order to maximize the use of the local renewable energy.

US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
