Sony Corp. and utility Hydro-Quebec have announced plans to launch a joint venture in June to research and develop a large-scale energy storage system for power grids. The new technology will be designed for various applications, such as meeting excess demand during peak times at electric power substations and integrating renewable energy sources.

The joint venture will utilize Hydro-Quebec's operation and control technologies for electric power supplies, as well as its lithium-ion battery material technology, together with Sony’s control technologies for olivine-type lithium-ion iron phosphate rechargeable batteries and scalable module systems.
