The H2020 STORY Project Researches New Energy Storage Technologies

The H2020 STORY project is researching new energy storage technologies and their benefits in the distribution networks and involves 18 Partner Institutions in 8 different European countries.

Preliminary results obtained in STORY’s Spanish plant demonstrate that even with the regulatory restrictions applied, the peak power can be reduced by about 20% as well as the energy consumption from the grid during peak hours (17.00-23.00) to amount to overall savings of up to 8%. Estimates from simulations with an advanced energy management strategy allowing the battery to charge from the grid, reveal that power peak reductions of up to 50% in peak hours and overall savings up to 20% are possible.
