The city of Nice on the Côte d'Azur has put energy control at the heart of its regional planning policies.
In Carros, the NICE GRID project provides various stakeholders with the means to massively integrate renewable energy and ensure optimal energy management.
Maximise photovoltaic production to the local grid using all the roof surfaces available.
Minimise investments in infrastructure.
Ensure a continuity of service, even if the main grid fails.
Socomec role on Nice Grid project
Socomec’s smart energy storage management solutions are key to the innovative system implemented in the NICE GRID project. During the day, the surplus photovoltaic production is stored in batteries. The available energy allows you to increase the flexibility of the grid and overcome any interruptions in supply. Across the district, the Socomec storage converter allows islanding or the creation of a Microgrid.
