EASE Position on Energy Storage Deployment Hampered by Grid Charges

EASE has published its position paper “Energy Storage Deployment Hampered by Grid Charges”, which highlights the significant differences in grid charges across countries to which large-scale pumped hydro storage (PHS) power plants are exposed today. It illustrates the impact of the currently fragmented regulatory framework on energy storage competitiveness in general and how it is hampering the creation of an internal energy market.

In its paper, EASE calls for a coordinated approach to defining grid tariffs for storage that recognises its alleviative effects on grid constraints and grid extension costs, while contributing to reduced curtailment of CO2 free electricity generation.
