EUSEW – Energy storage to boost EU decarbonisation and competitiveness

As part of the European Sustainable Energy Week, InnoEnergy, EERA and Steag will co-arrange a seminar dedicated to energy storage and how it boosts EU decarbonisation and competitiveness.

Europe is facing major challenges regarding the energy transition towards a climate-neutral economy and society by 2050. These challenges need to be tackled at many levels – scientific progress to find new, unexplored solutions and improve existing ones; their uptake by industry, translating them into competitive applications while guaranteeing jobs and opening new market opportunities in Europe; political support, adequate regulation and strategic investment, and society at large, which needs to embrace both new technologies and fundamental behavioural changes.

Energy storage is a key element in the challenge to achieve a decarbonised economy at the crossroads of electrified mobility, penetration of renewables, and a decentralised energy system. This session will gather stakeholders from across the value chain and from different
energy storage applications. The first part is dedicated to the presentation of future and emerging technologies for energy storage – focusing on chemical and electrochemical approaches – with an emphasis on research and innovation. In the second part, we will be
discussing how the European industry is applying specifically battery technologies, working on new options for the integration of renewables and improving the utilization of the grid.
Both parts are taking into account recent development at policy level – including for example the Strategic Action Plan on Batteries, the Electricity Market Directive, the European Battery Alliance and the upcoming Framework Programme for Research and Innovation with its Mission approach.
