Complementing the activities performed so far by the European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI), EASE, together with the leader of the consortium TECHNOFI and its partners EDSO, ENTSO-E, RSE and VITO have been selected by the European Commission to support DG Energy and the member states in defining a European R&D roadmap integrating energy storage into grid research and innovation activities, both at electricity transmission and distribution levels.
To ensure that all technology development needs and market uptake measures required to fully develop opportunities for Energy Storage are addressed, EASE and its members and their expansive expertise will actively contribute to the project.
During two years, the following activities will be implemented by the partners:
- Extensive public consultations to gather the views of all the stakeholders potentially impacted by or involved in research and innovation activities in these areas;
- Detailed project reviews and analyses at international level to identify best practices and knowledge gaps;
- Knowledge sharing activities in order to better appraise the yearly progress of projects having a European Added Value.
These activities will allow EASE and its partners to deliver at the end of 2016 a ten-year integrated Research and Innovation Roadmap and the related short-term Implementation Plans, in support of a more secure single European electricity market.
