EASE, the European Association for Storage of Energy, has published its position paper “Thermal Energy Storage” (TES), which highlights the role of TES in supporting the energy transition.
In this paper, EASE proposes three concrete short-term actions that can further leverage the actions proposed by the Commission in the “Clean Energy for All Europeans” Package:
- Assess the benefits and (market) potential of thermal energy storage options for prosumers, industry, and communities, among other flexibility solutions; improve efforts to communicate the role and benefits of thermal storage.
- Implement non-discriminatory market incentives and regulatory frameworks across the EU for flexibility solutions.
- Support demonstration and deployment projects for (new) integrated solutions which incorporate pre-commercial thermal energy storage options in smart energy systems to reach the required flexibility at lowest system costs.
