EASE has estimated that the European Union requirements for energy storage are approximately 200 GW by 2030, and 600 GW by 2050.
The conference’s fifth edition will be held on 11 – 13 October 2022 as a 100% hybrid event at Hotel Le Plaza in Brussels.
Open letter calling on the European Commission to recognise energy storage’s crucial role for the security of energy supply in Europe.
EASE is actively shaping the legal and R&D funding framework for energy storage at EU level. Members gain direct influence in the European decision-making process.
Members benefit from EASE’s expertise and technical know-how, and they can participate in EU-funded research projects. EASE is currently involved in many EU-funded projects.
EASE gathers knowledge, information and data about future market developments that can help the energy storage stakeholders to adapt to the changing business environment.
Featuring in EASE’s publications and events, such as the Energy Storage Global Conference, gives you visibility and the opportunity to strengthen your network among storage experts.
EASE is glad to extend a warm welcome to its newest member, Evapco Europe, who joined EASE in May 2022. Mr Rob Vandenboer Technical Director at Evapco Europe accepted to discuss with us the expertise of Evapco Europe, in energy storage and their expectations from this collaboration with EASE.
12 July 2022: EASE – The European Association for Storage of Energy – invites all actors active in the renewable energy and energy storage sector to endorse EU-wide energy storage targets.
1 July 2022: Breakthrough Energy, EASE, SolarPower Europe, and WindEurope jointly organised the event “Energy security needs energy storage” in Brussels on 30 June 2022. The event discussed the role of energy storage in the European Commission’s REPowerEU Action Plan, its energy response to the war in Ukraine.
On 18 May 2022, the European Commission unveiled REPowerEU, a plan to reduce Russian fossil fuel dependency and fast forward the green transition. EASE welcomes the provisions that aim at boosting energy storage deployment, yet, the absence of an energy storage strategy that would outline clear targets is unfortunate. Its announcement alone would have sent strong investment signals and accelerated technology deployment.
Built on the foundations of four successful conferences organised since 2014, this year the three-day event will gather over 500 participants, sponsors and exhibitors, who will have the possibility to connect and interact in-person and online, throughout the whole conference.
"The need to decarbonize the entire power generation and reach independency from fossil fuels has reached the point of no return" declared Mr Giuseppe Casubolo, Commercial Vice-President Industrial Nitrates at SQM, a new member that joined the association in March 2022.
On 12 July 2022, over 180 participants attended the webinar on how much energy storage does Europe need. The webinar aimed to discuss the huge role energy storage has to play in the evolving energy system, and shed light on how much energy storage will be needed, building upon our estimates in the recently published EASE review paper ‘Energy Storage Targets 2030 and 2050’.
EASE has estimated that the European Union no-regret requirements for energy storage are 200 GW by 2030 and 600 GW by 2050. Current market trajectories for storage will fail to meet these requirements if urgent measures to boost deployment are not taken now. Yet, energy storage is an essential component for enabling renewables integration and establishing a secure, low-emission and affordable energy system.
EASE has prepared a general overview and the best practices across member states, when looking at the way forward for energy storage grid fees. Energy storage doesn’t receive the same treatment across the European Union as far as grid fees go: different technologies, different location (behind-the-meter vs front of the meter), have to face a variety of tariff structures, often not consistent with the EU-level rules as set by the Electricity Market Regulation.
The EASE Task Force on Multi-Services Business Cases for Energy Storage has prepared a report looking at the key role of energy storage as a Local Flexibility provider. This paper gives an overview of existing short-term local flexibility schemes in Europe today including Active-network management (ANM) and other flexibility services and their implications on the business case for energy storage.
