2020 just started and we are happy to look back at what we achieved in 2019 to plan even better meeting and events for 2020. Last year EASE initiated a great deal of activities and events, to increase awareness of the energy storage business case and stimulate the debate on ways to support the widespread deployment of storage across Europe.
Below a few events in which you might have met us.
Energy Storage in the Clean Energy for All Europeans Package Workshop
In May 2019, following the approval of the Clean Energy Package, EASE organised the Energy Storage in the Clean Energy for All Europeans Package Workshop. The event gathered around 100 participants from across the storage industry and offered a unique chance to all the participants to outline all the practical implications of the Clean Energy Package and emphasise challenges and opportunities related to it.
If you could not participate you can read the conclusions of the workshop here: Clean Energy for All Europeans Package Workshop
In June 2019, EASE participated in the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) to represent the voice of the energy storage community. In addition to delivering an insightful energy talk and organising two sessions, EASE supported as Communications Partner. In the framework of this activity, EASE was granted a booth in the Networking Village and the possibility to involve the participants in an online quiz aimed at assessing the general understanding of energy storage applications and raising awareness about the various energy storage technologies.
We are now planning our contributions to EUSEW 2020, if you would like to receive more information about the event or would like to support, you can contact Ms Doriana Forleo (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Energy Storage on Islands Workshop
Many islands are known for being early adopters of renewables and for setting the scene on some of the world’s first deployment of energy storage projects, thus offering a great opportunity to foresee a number of future scenarios for the integration of renewables. In November 2019, the Energy Storage on Islands Workshop gathered over 80 participants to share the experiences gained from storage projects on islands and debate the different challenges and opportunities related to it.
Read now the recommendations elaborated by the workshop participants to speed up deployment of energy storage projects on islands and support the transition to decarbonised island energy systems: EASE Reccomendation on Energy Storage on Islands Workshop
These and many other events organised by EASE in 2019 contributed to establishing a fact-based dialogue about the role of energy storage in the effort towards a decarbonised energy system.
In 2020, the EASE Secretariat will focus on the organisation of the Energy Storage Global Conference 2020, that will take place in Brussels on 13 – 15 October 2020. The 3-day Conference will bring together representatives from all around the world to discuss the latest developments in energy storage technologies, regulatory frameworks, and the storage market.
