Some energy companies (coordinated by the French TSO RTE) and technological providers (including Schneider Electric and Nexans) invited MEDEE to join an ambitious meta-project called AFRICA GRID. This approach is part of Jean-Louis Borloo initiative, presented in COP21. It aims at increasing the French participation in electrification projects in Africa.
MEDEE will bring the R&D&I resources and help mobilizing new industrial players around this project.
Two projects have already been submitted to potential financers associating MEDEE and the Laboratory of Electrical Engineering and Power Electronics (L2EP) about a pilot connected solar plant and the creation of R&D center around the renewable energies integration in the grid.
