Welcome on Board HiTHIUM
The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) is glad to extend a warm welcome to its newest member HiTHIUM who joined EASE in February 2023. Mr. Winfried Wahl, Senior Director at HiTHIUM, accepted to discuss HiTHIUM's expertise in energy storage and expectations from this collaboration with EASE.
EASE: Mr. Winfried Wahl, thank you very much for accepting this interview. We are very really happy to have HiTHIUM among our members and we would like to know more about your activities in the sector. Could you summarise the most interesting insights from the work of your company for energy storage?
First of all thank you for accepting us as a new member of EASE. HiTHIUM has been founded by very experienced leaders from the battery industry with clear focus on stationary energy storage products based on LFP technology. This focus allows us to optimize products, processes and production on cost and performance especially for the needs of ESS systems. HiTHIUM is founded on strong R&D activities not just on DC-systems but as well on LFP cells and materials used to continuously improve their performance.
EASE: We look forward to a very fruitful collaboration with you and to receive HiTHIUM inputs for our Working Groups and Task Forces. What created the interest from your company to join EASE?
Storage systems are the missing cornerstone of a successful and affordable renewable energy system. Since sources like solar and wind are volatile, storage will need to buffer energy production and match demand at any time. Doing so, regulatory framework plays a big role for the successful transition, energy regulation and laws need to be updated, people educated, and know-how shared. No doubt, EASE as the European industry association has a very important role on that challenge. Therefore, we would like to team up with EASE and its members to accept this challenge, which is all of us’ challenge. Let’s work together!
EASE: What is your vision for how energy storage can contribute to the energy transition?
As said, energy storage is the key for the success of the second phase of energy transition. The more we substitute traditional and fossil power plants, the more storage needs to team up with cheap and green sources of energy production and make them available 24/7 at 365 days a year. If besides producer and consumer we add storage to the energy system, we eliminate the need to produce energy same time as demanded and reach next step on the path to 100% renewable and green energy.
