French renewables developer Total Eren has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Kazakhstan to develop, finance, build and operate a massive onshore wind and energy storage hybrid project.

The plan foresees 1GW of wind energy linked to 500MW to 1GW of battery energy storage located in central Kazakhstan.

While the developer hasn’t provided details about the supplier of the about 200 wind turbines for the project, it said a very large battery storage system is slated to be provided by TotalEnergies lithium-ion battery unit Saft.
