Open letter calling on the European Commission to recognise energy storage’s crucial role for the security of energy supply in Europe.
The conference’s fifth edition will be held on 11 – 13 October 2022 as a 100% hybrid event at Hotel Le Plaza in Brussels.
EASE is proud to launch its seventh annual Student Award recognising outstanding graduate student research in the field of energy storage.
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.
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 13 April, Breakthrough Energy, the European Association for Storage of Energy - EASE, Solar Power Europe, and Wind Europe signed an open letter calling on the European Commission to recognise energy storage’s crucial role for the security of energy supply in Europe.
The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) is proud to announce for the seventh year its annual Student Award, recognising outstanding graduate student research in the field of energy storage.
EASE welcomes the European Commission’s REPowerEU, but energy security will only be achieved through energy shifting. The Russian Invasion of Ukraine has brought the case for clean energy and security of supply to the forefront of the political discussion. With the EU importing 90% of its gas consumption, 40% of which originating from Russia, the European Commission is seeking diversification of gas supply as a mean to secure energy independence.
EASE has responded to the European Commission's Public Consultation on 'Renewable Energy Projects - Permit-Granting Processes & Power Purchase Agreements . This initiative aims to facilitate renewable energy production projects. It will focus on the key barriers to implementing renewable energy projects and outline good practices addressing the identified barriers and good practices to facilitate power-purchase agreements, including across borders.
EASE has responded to the European Commission's Public Consultation on the proposal for ‘Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas markets’ Package. This Package, consisting of a review of the Gas Regulation and of the Gas Directive, aims to decarbonise gas consumption, and puts forward policy measures required for supporting the creation of optimum and dedicated infrastructure, as well as efficient markets.
EASE has prepared a position paper on the Renewable Energy Directive Revision (REDIII) highlighting the great opportunity this review offers in terms of speeding up decarbonisation efforts in the energy system. EASE believes energy storage can be fostered through RED III in multiple ways.
