We are proud of projects where EVLO energy storage is powering a brighter future.
Integrating renewable energies
Energy storage systems in off-grid communities in Northern Québec
In the isolated and off-grid Inuit community of Quaqtaq, Hydro-Québec is testing the integration of new technologies in solar power and energy storage so as to optimize the penetration of renewable energy in off-grid systems.
Quaqtaq is one of the northernmost inhabited villages in Québec: average temperatures here go below -40 °C in winter months. We’re testing 69 solar panels and two EVLO 500 Arctic systems, which can operate at temperatures as low as −60 °C.

Resilience and energy efficiency
First neighborhood-sized microgrid in Québec at the heart of a new city center
Following the July 2013 rail disaster and the destruction of its downtown core, Lac-Mégantic faced multiple challenges: physical reconstruction, social rehabilitation and economic diversification, to name but a few.
Today, Lac-Mégantic has its sights set on the future. EVLO is playing a role in rebuilding the area with its safety-oriented technology. A microgrid will increase the resiliency of the electrical supply and provide a large source of renewable power for the downtown area. The project links approximately 1,700 solar panels with two safe and sustainable EVLO 500 energy storage systems. This new neighborhood-sized microgrid will service 40 buildings in the city’s core while offering residents electric vehicle charging and, in select locations, advanced home automation controls for more efficient energy management.

Optimizing peak-period consumption
Installation of energy storage in a commercial building
Our compact, safe and sustainable EVLO 125 product excels in behind-the-meter applications where energy storage solutions operate in very close proximity to the buildings they support. In the town of Blainville, Québec, four EVLO 125 systems installed in a 69,000-sq. ft. office building are coupled with an advanced EVLO Energy Management System. Designed to optimize the building’s energy usage, this solution has reduced the building’s peak consumption by nearly 15%.
