How to Kick-Start Energy Storage Deployment
Over the past several years, EU policymakers have taken important steps towards creating a regulatory framework that is supportive of energy storage. Advocacy by EASE and players from across the energy storage sector has led energy storage to be widely recognised as a key enabling technology for the energy transition.
With the upcoming EU elections, EASE would like to ensure that the European institutions continue to foster the development and deployment of energy storage technologies across Europe. Especially with the recent approval of the Clean Energy for All Europeans Package and the ongoing discussions about the EU’s 2050 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Strategy, it is crucial to build on what has been achieved so far.
To this end, EASE members have developed a list of 10 points to kick-start energy storage in Europe, translated into all major European languages. The list reflects the expectations of energy storage stakeholders on the progress that still needs to be made if we want to reach the levels of storage deployment that will be needed to achieve the 2030 and 2050 renewable and decarbonisation targets. This action list is directed at everyone, specialists and non-specialists alike, with the goal of increasing awareness and knowledge about the importance of energy storage and stating what needs to be further improved in terms of policy.
EASE would like to thank all of its members who participated in the internal consultation directed at drafting – and sometimes translating - this document, and looks forward to working with EU policymakers and other stakeholders to achieve a flexible, secure, and efficient energy system.
Here are the 10 points:
