The sixth edition of the Energy Storage Global Conference (ESGC) will take place on 10-12 October 2023 in Brussels at Hotel Le Plaza. During three days, representatives will meet to discuss regulatory and policy frameworks, the future storage market, and the latest developments in energy storage technologies.
EASE has finalised a paper on the upcoming electricity market design revision, highlighting how energy storage can enable a carbon-neutral future. More than ever, energy independence, security of supply, sector integration, and decarbonisation are guiding policymakers’ actions. EASE identifies a list of changes as needed to ensure a renewable-based and secure energy system.
EASE has estimated that the European Union requirements for energy storage are approximately 200 GW by 2030, and 600 GW by 2050.
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.
