Stay up-to-date on the fast-changing energy storage market. The report analyses the European energy storage installed base in the residential, commercial & industrial and front-of-meter sectors.
EASE supports the European Green Deal and an upward revision of the 2030 greenhouse gas emission reduction objectives.
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.
Giulia Ravarino, winner of EASE's Student Award 2021, tells us all about her award winning thesis and how she sees the future of virtual power plants.
The third Revision of the Gas Package, published on 15 December 2021, lays out the European Union’s ambitions for the decarbonisation of the gas sector, including hydrogen, by setting a framework for the deployment and usage of renewable and low-carbon gases. The European Commission elaborates provisions in controversial subjects including infrastructure, hydrogen, consumer rights and transparency, yet the Package is not inspiring enough to achieve its own decarbonisation ambition.
In 2011 energy storage really was something novel, for both the industry and policymakers. Over the last couple years, the number of policies related to energy storage has increased dramatically. Policymakers are eager to untap the sector’s potential . In a European Union that aims for a Green Deal and sound Post-Covid Recovery, energy storage is now seen as a key sector.
From the 19 - 21 October the spotlight was on energy storage markets, policies and technologies. The attention towards energy storage is on the rise as more and more actors now recognise the key role it plays in achieving the decarbonisation targets. With 350 participants, 130 speakers and 11 exhibitors, this edition of the Energy Storage Global Conference provided valuable insights on energy storage and showcased itself as a leading event for the industry giving access to current knowledge and fantastic contacts in the field.
Recently, European countries have seen an unexpected and strong surge in gas prices. Price spikes have caused numerous problems affecting industry and society. The Commission came out with a "toolbox" to tackle these issues where it highlighted storage as one solution. The Press Release argues why this is important and what more needs to be done to allow storage to protect Europe against any future disruptions.
Energy storage has been put on the map and is becoming a key element of the energy transition, not only to provide more flexibility to the system, but also to shift energy to when it is really needed. Energy storage provides flexibility and backup power without adding CO2 emissions, and that’s why its fast deployment is so important.
11 industry associations covering the entire batteries value chain express their concerns about key elements in the ongoing debates in the European Parliament and the Council on the Batteries Regulation proposal, and provide recommendations for achieving shared goals.
EASE welcomes the recast Energy Taxation Directive, which goes in the right direction by making it possible to consider energy storage facilities as redistributors so to avoid double taxation. More ambitious steps are needed however, such as basing minimum tax rates on carbon content of the energy product, setting enforceable rules to phase-out double taxation in all Member States, and ensuring system integration is incentivised through favourable rates.
