Meeting of the Working Group “Storage and Cross Energy Carrier Synergies”

ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus initiative invites you to join the Working Group "Storage and Cross Energy Carrier Synergies” meeting organised by ERA-Net SG+ on March 10-11, 2016, in Munich, Germany


Westendstraße 123 F, 2nd floor
80339 Munich – Germany

About the Event

The energy system of the future will be characterised by a high penetration of energy from renewable energy sources. Because of the intermittency of some renewables, guaranteeing grid stability in the future makes finding and deploying new balancing mechanisms indispensable. Storage is one of the means that will become a cornerstone for a safe and stable energy supply in the future. This applies to short-term storage solutions as well as to long-term storage technologies. Still, there is a lot of research and market scale effects needed for making these technologies reliable and affordable. Further, regulation has to be adapted as well as new business models need to be found in order to make widespread application feasible.

The first workshop of the Working Group will mainly cover the following topics:
  • Provision of balancing power: is this market overestimated?
  • Application of short-term storage possibilities beyond provision of balancing power and maximizing PV electricity self-consumption: what is the potential in the context of historically low energy market price spreads?
  • Long-term storage opportunities: which of today’s niche markets can provide the necessary push and can trigger industrial scale-effects?
Note: Participants are invited to give a short presentation on one of the three topics. In case that you are interested, please announce that when you register for the event.
Target Group: This event is open to stakeholders in the area of smart grids who have not been involved previously in the ERA-Net Smart Grids community. We would be pleased to welcome you at our event.
