On 18 November 2020, EASE General Assembly elected Mr David Post, Head of Energy Storage Solutions at Enel X, to serve as the new EASE President. Mr Post is an expert in business development for renewable, conventional energy and energy storage projects and previously occupied the position of EASE Vice-President and served as head of the association’s Technology and Value Assessment Committee.
The declining costs of batteries have greatly fostered battery uptake and the EU initiatives in the field had positive effects on strengthening the value chain. The industry has received incentives to foster batteries and the opportunity to shape the industry’s R&I&D for the years to come. The new Battery Regulation Proposal has the potential to dramatically change the batteries’ business case – especially in the context of e.g. second-life batteries. Much of the focus of the new, proposed norms revolve around sustainability and circular economy.
EASE welcomes its new member Sungrow who joined the association in March 2021. Mr Tony Zhang answered our questions and declared that "With more and more European countries devoting themselves to reduce the carbon emission to “Zero” by 2050, we can envision that more and more renewables will be gradually dominant in the energy structure in the future. Undoubtedly, energy storage will continue to play an important part in solving intermittency and volatility."
TLT-Turbo has always been committed to contributing to energy saving. In this respect, energy storage systems fit into their concept of sustainable energy production and use. Discover more about the work of the newest member of the association.
On 23 March 2021, EASE and Delta-EE launch the fifth edition of the European Market Monitor on Energy Storage (EMMES). The report reveals the effects of the pandemic on the energy storage market, with lockdown affecting commercial and industrial and behind-the-meter segments, while front-of-meter projects proved more resilient. Looking ahead, 2021 looks particularly strong for the sector with new ancillary services opening across Europe and national targets further supporting regional projects.
EASE welcomes its new member APREN who joined our membership in January 2021. Mr Pedro Amaral Jorge answered our questions and declared that "Improved methods for storing and dispatching electricity are key to maintain a high reliability and security of the electric supply, but also for increasing the economic value of renewables and strengthening competitiveness in the clean energy market."
