Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
In 2011, ERDF submitted the demonstrator as part of an ADEME program called “smart grid electric network” (AMI). Early 2012, the French Commissioner General for Investment (CGI) approved the project. The demonstrator is focused on the integration of large wind energy in distribution networks. More precisely the project will study observability and controllability of wind-farms, voltage regulation and centralized local protection plan and power quality. If the costs benefits analysis is validated by all involved stakeholders, a battery storage system offering a full service package would be implemented on 20 kV level.
