EU Clean Energy Transition: Perspectives and Challenges for Energy Storage
Europe is facing the major challenge of implementing the energy transition to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, as adopted by the European Green Deal in December 2019. The future energy grid has to be flexible enough to accommodate higher shares of variable renewable generation such as solar and wind power in a secure way. Hence, the development and integration of affordable as well as sustainable energy storage capacity gets crucial for the clean energy transition.
What are the socio-economic energy storage expectations by 2030/2050 and what opportunities and challenges, including on access and affordability, does it imply for consumers? What are the industry plans for the future energy system with a focus on storage (mid and long-term)?How can research contribute to make storage resources more affordable? What R&I priorities, gaps and models of industry-research collaboration that can be shared and replicated in other EU countries and contexts in the batteries sector? How can StoRIES services enhance the innovation uptake? These are some of the questions the workshop will address.
This workshop, jointly organised by StoRIES, Joint Programme for Energy Storage (EERA) and SUPEERA project, is a timely opportunity for bringing together researchers, industry, end-users, policymakers and other stakeholders. The goal is to exchange views on key issues for the storage sector and discuss possible future scenarios of the energy system.
All participants taking part in the workshop in person will be invited to continue the interesting discussions and to network with other participants by attending the dinner that will take place right after the workshop.
Please note that the venue has been relocated from Karlsruhe to Ulm (DE)!!!
The next EERA JP ES Steering Committee meeting will be organised on 24th November (9-12 CET) in hybrid mode, with a group of participants attending the conference live (Ulm, DE) and a group attending online. In the registration phase, please indicate your preference for participation (in person or virtual)! More information will follow.
The meeting is open only for EERA JP ES members and invited quests.
Please note that the venue has been relocated from Karlsruhe to Ulm.
StoRIES project brings together a consortium of beneficiaries like ESFRI facilities, technology institutes, universities and industrial partners to jointly improve the economic performance of storage technologies.
The kick-off meeting of the project will take place in Ulm (DE) on 25th November in hybrid modus, in-person and online.
Prospective sustainability assessment of energy storage technologies - methods and case studies
The Sub-program 6: Techno-economics and sustainability of energy storage technologies of the EERA Joint Programme Energy Storage (JP ES) offers all EERA JP ES PhD students the possibility to present and discuss their work to their peers within the extended EERA JP ES network.
