Energy Storage: A Key Enabler for the Decarbonisation of the Transport Sector
The transport sector is the only EU sector in which greenhouse gas emissions have risen since 1990. To reduce these emissions and meet its long-term decarbonisation goals, the EU is focusing on electrifying the transport sector, based on renewable energy sources, through Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs).
Electrifying the transport sector will create new consumption patterns and business models but could also impose significant stress and costs on the electricity system if left unmanaged. EASE’s position paper on energy storage and mobility introduces general principles that should be implemented at EU level to support the roll-out of Electric Vehicles (EVs). It also explains how energy storage systems can reduce the cost of this roll-out by coupling the energy and transport sectors.
