What's in Store for the Future of Energy?
Energy storage has the potential to play a vital role has the world transitions from traditional energy to renewable, sustainable energy sources.
Around the world, society is making the switch to more sustainable energy. This energy transition requires new rules to cope with the challenges of integrating renewable energy sources into the system. Energy storage is a valuable provider of system flexibility and is therefore an important component of an increasingly secure, low-carbon and cost-effective energy future. Integrating large-scale renewables is important, but energy storage can also help support the production and use of renewable energy by customers.
A diverse range of energy storage technologies is being deployed across Europe today, but the regulatory framework has not yet caught up with this rapid transformation. Significant barriers still remain and need to be addressed.
EASE (European Association for Storage of Energy) serves as the voice of the energy storage community. EASE supports the deployment of storage across Europe by advocating a fair market design for energy storage, and promotes funding for energy storage research and development.
By recognising the value and benefits of storage, Europe can make the energy transition with EASE.
