EASE Inputs on Battery Sustainability and Ecodesign

Different policy measures are needed to promote the research, development, and deployment of all energy storage technologies. EASE supports efforts by EU policymakers to bolster the manufacturing and deployment of safe and sustainable battery technologies across the EU and believes that a proposal for sustainability requirements could have a positive impact on the industry.

Energy Storage for a Decarbonised Europe by 2050

In the first 100 days of the von der Leyen Commission’s entry into office, a proposal will be put forward for a European Green Deal with a comprehensive strategy for achieving ambitious decarbonisation targets. The energy storage sector supports this important initiative and is committed to playing its part in supporting the cost-effective, secure, and efficient transition to a net-zero emissions power system by 2050.

EASE Response to the European Commission Public Consultation on the Establishment of a Smart Readiness Indicator for Buildings

EASE submitted a response to the European Commission's public consultation on the Establishment of a Smart Readiness Indicator for Buildings. The Smart Readiness Indicator will be used to measure the capacity of buildings to use information and communication technologies and electronic systems to adapt the operation of buildings to the needs of the occupants and the grid and to improve the energy efficiency and overall performance of buildings.

European Commission’s Sustainability Requirements for Batteries

Battery technologies play a key role in decarbonising the road transport sector and strongly contribute to energy storage solutions, both for domestic and grid applications. Therefore EASE endorses policymakers’ efforts to ensure that the EU develops a strong battery value chain and to facilitate the deployment of energy storage technologies.

Recommendations on Certification of Renewable and Low-Carbon Hydrogen

Power-to-gas and power-to-liquid technologies are a key enabler of sector integration. The upcoming revision of the ‘Gas Package’ presents a unique opportunity for the EU to clarify the regulatory framework applicable to PtG and PtL facilities and to create a supportive environment for the development and deployment of these technologies. In this light EASE has prepared some key recommendations for the certification of hydrogen produced through power-to-gas.

Open Letter Addressing Energy Storage in the National Energy and Climate Plans

Developing a clear strategy to support the development and deployment of storage technologies is essential in order for Member States to achieve their decarbonisation targets for 2030 and beyond. EASE would like to support the drafting of ambitious yet achievable plans that can have a true impact on the energy sector.
