Strategy for Long-Term EU Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reductions

October 2018

EASE has submitted a response to the European Commission’s Public Consultation on the Strategy for Long-Term EU Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reductions.

Our members are fully supportive of the EU’s efforts to achieve a low-carbon economy, and we support ambitious greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets.

Energy storage deployment can facilitate the transition to a low-carbon energy system in many ways, e.g. by:

  • Enabling higher shares of RES in the energy mix
  • Supporting electrification of the heating, cooling, and transport sectors
  • Supporting the secure, cost-effective, and efficient operation of the grid by providing key services at all levels of the energy system
  • Extending the lifetime of existing grid assets
  • Allowing active consumers to optimise self-consumption or provision of services to the grid
  • Ensuring security of supply: avoiding PV and wind curtailment avoids importing fuel
  • Enabling a faster energy transition on islands and in isolated areas

We hope that the long-term EU greenhouse gas emissions reductions strategy will take into account the vital role of storage.
