The 2019 Spring EASE Committee Meetings, hosted by EASE member Naturgy, have just come to an end. On 19 and 20 March 2019 EASE Members’ representatives met at Naturgy’s InnovaHub in Madrid to discuss the biggest technical and regulatory challenges shaping the energy storage sector in Europe.
The InnovaHub is a space dedicated to creation and innovation, in which it is possible to work and connect with the main players of the digital and technology ecosystem. It provides an open space for meeting, in which entrepreneurs and innovators can work, network and organise events of interest to the energy innovation community.
Thanks to the activities proposed by InnovaHub, stakeholders of the energy sector have the opportunity to pitch in together and gain experience, enlarge their network and exchange knowledge in order to be full protagonists of the development of the energy sector.
This engaging context fostered the discussion in the three EASE Committees. The Technology and Value Assessment Committee deepened the discussion on energy storage technologies, costs, and applications; the Communications Committee finalised certain deliverables and communications campaigns that will be soon be available on Social Media and on the EASE website and, finally, the Strategy Committee focused on how to tackle the current regulatory challenges and barriers to the deployment of energy storage.
The 2019 Spring Committee meetings were productive and engaging for EASE and its members. We would like to thank all participants for providing interesting input to our work, and in particular Naturgy for granting us access to the InnovaHub, a very interesting and stimulating environment for our discussions.
We look forward to replicate this experience in similar facilities that foster innovation and networking among EASE members.
