French national utility EDF says it plans to spend 8 billion euros ($9.8 billion) by 2035 in a move to become “the European leader” in energy storage. EDF’s goal is to develop 10 GW of storage around the world by that same timeframe. The company already operates 5 GW of storage facilities. In particular, EDF is targeting the residential sector in France and Europe with a variety of self-consumption services that use batteries, as well as Africa where the utility company hopes to develop a portfolio of 1.2 million off-grid customers by 2035 through local partnerships.
