The Way Forward for Energy Storage Grid Fees

EASE has prepared a general overview and the best practices across member states, when looking at the way forward for energy storage grid fees. Energy storage doesn’t receive the same treatment across the European Union as far as grid fees go: different technologies, different location (behind-the-meter vs front of the meter), have to face a variety of tariff structures, often not consistent with the EU-level rules as set by the Electricity Market Regulation.

Optimising Energy Use: How Energy Storage Can Support European Energy Reduction Needs

The revisions of the Energy Performance and Buildings Directive and the Energy Efficiency Directive are vital to achieving a zero-emission and fully decarbonised building stock and a carbon-neutral energy system by 2050. EASE welcomes these revisions as an opportunity to speed up decarbonisation efforts through the efficient and optimised use of energy. However, stronger integration of energy storage solutions is required.
