EPS and Enel for the world’s first 100% emission-free microgrid
Milan, Calama, 1 June 2017 – EPS announces the commissioning for Enel Green Power of the world’s first microgrid 100% emission-free, coupled with hydrogen and lithium-based storage.
This Hybrid Power Plant is meeting the energy demand of the camp hosting over 600 technicians working at the Enel Green Power’s geothermal plant Cerro Pabellón, located in Ollagüe, in the Antofagasta region of Chile, in the heart of the Atacama Desert (4500m above sea level).
This project is a milestone in the validation from the market of EPS technology and another step forward in our path to energy transition for gradually displacing diesel generation globally.
EPS is proud of this unique and challenging microgrid commissioned in such a remote geographical area and, above all, to have partnered with Enel.
