REPowerEU Recognises the Role of Energy Storage, but the Lack of a Dedicated Storage Strategy is a Missed Opportunity

On 18 May 2022, the European Commission unveiled REPowerEU, a plan to reduce Russian fossil fuel dependency and fast forward the green transition. EASE welcomes the provisions that aim at boosting energy storage deployment, yet, the absence of an energy storage strategy that would outline clear targets is unfortunate. Its announcement alone would have sent strong investment signals and accelerated technology deployment.

REPowerEU: Energy Security Will Only Be Achieved Through Energy Shifting

EASE welcomes the European Commission’s REPowerEU, but energy security will only be achieved through energy shifting. The Russian Invasion of Ukraine has brought the case for clean energy and security of supply to the forefront of the political discussion. With the EU importing 90% of its gas consumption, 40% of which originating from Russia, the European Commission is seeking diversification of gas supply as a mean to secure energy independence.

Third Gas Package: Further Ambition Is Required to Successfully Integrate Renewable and Low-Carbon Gases

The third Revision of the Gas Package, published on 15 December 2021, lays out the European Union’s ambitions for the decarbonisation of the gas sector, including hydrogen, by setting a framework for the deployment and usage of renewable and low-carbon gases. The European Commission elaborates provisions in controversial subjects including infrastructure, hydrogen, consumer rights and transparency, yet the Package is not inspiring enough to achieve its own decarbonisation ambition.
