December 2015 / Policy Papers - Responses to Public Consultations
Renewable Energy Strategy
EASE responded to the public consultation intended to help prepare a communication to inform the EU's renewable energy policy for the period post 2020. This complements a communication on the Internal Energy Market which is planned for 2016, and will also help inform the evolution of the EU's wider energy policies following on from the Energy 2050 Roadmap.
In this report, EASE is proposed to adopt a dynamic communication role as a knowledge pool:
- by gathering information related to existing commercial or pilot & demonstration
facilities in EU member states;
- by facilitating the exchange of information related to operating conditions of existing
An energy storage road mapping exercise up to 2050 is proposed. It should take into consideration both centralised and decentralised energy storage based on intermediate milestones (2020, 2030 and 2040). The European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI) is identified as the primary actor to carry out the task.
