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.
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.
"The world needs to cut climate-gas emissions by 50% within the next 9 years. Massive use of batteries in EVs and ESS can achieve that. And the world both needs to and seems to be willing to make that happen!" declared Mr Bonduelle Executive Vice President Sales at FREYR Battery, a new member that joined EASE in May 2021
EASE welcomes the publication of the EU’s ‘Fit for 55’ Package: 13 legislative proposals aimed at accelerating efforts to meet the EU’s target of 55% greenhouse gas emissions reductions by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050. The Package is a prime opportunity to build on the ‘Clean Energy Package’ and implement more ambitious policies that put energy storage front and centre in the EU’s decarbonisation strategy.
The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) is proud to announce the launch of its sixth annual Student Award, recognising outstanding graduate student research in the field of energy storage.
The European Commission announced in its 2021 Working Programme that the Third Gas Package will be revised to regulate competitive decarbonised gas markets: EASE believes that energy storage solutions as Hydrogen and Power-to-Gas will play a key role in the transition of the gas system, and sees the proposed revision as a great opportunity to enhance sector integration as well as the deployment of renewable carbon gases.
EASE has provided a response to ENTSO-E Public Consultation on the All Continental Europe TSO’s proposal to determine a minimum activation time period required for limited energy reservoirs to remain available during alert state in accordance with Article 156(11) of the SO GL. Although several flaws in the methodology have been detected, EASE has suggested reasessment of the methodology to enhance the proposal.
EASE welcomes the revision of the Climate, Energy and Environmental Aid Guidelines to align the State aid framework with the EU’s ambitious decarbonisation targets and the European Green Deal. With the revision of the EEAG, the EU seeks to address challenge of ensuring a clear framework that supports decarbonisation in a cost-effective manner while maintaining competition and fair trade.
EASE welcomes EU policymakers’ efforts to revise the Renewable Energy Directive II (RED II) as part of the ‘Fit for 55’ package, expected July 2021. Accelerating the deployment of renewable energy sources (RES) is essential to achieve the EU’s ambitious goals of a 55% GHG emissions reduction by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2050.
