March 11 (Renewables Now) - Neoen SA (EPA:NEOEN) has been awarded contracts to provide 13 MW of storage capacity in a tender process organised by French transmission system operator Reseau de Transport d'Electricite (RTE).

The contracts cover two projects that have been selected to provide capacity during two seven-year periods. One of them is the winner of the 2021-2027 tender round and will supply 7 MW of storage in lithium-ion batteries. The project resulting from the 2022-2028 round will have 6 MW of capacity, the French independent power producer said in a statement on Wednesday.

The facilities will be installed in France and connected to the grid operated by French power distributor Enedis SA.

According to Neoen, RTE’s auction attracted 1,500 MW worth of offers and allocated 377 MW of capacity to 12 companies. Of the awarded total, storage made up 253 MW, with load reduction accounting for the remaining 124 MW.
