LE NOUVELLISTE, RÉGION, p. 11 PDF

Avec l’avènement des énergies renouvelables, le stockage représente un défi technique et économique majeur, en particulier le stockage longue durée. On pense aux barrages, mais le Valais pourrait bientôt voir apparaître une autre option proposée par GRZ Technologies, une start-up issue de l’EPFL Valais.
