EASAC's next policy report on "Valuing Dedicated Storage in Electricity Grids" will be publicly launched on Monday, June 19, 2017 from 12:00 PM - 2:30 PM at the Palace of the Academies, Rue Ducale 1, Brussels.
The scientific team of European Academies Science Advisory Council, nominated by Europe's 28 national science academies, has been working for two years to develop an independent view for EU policy makers of the value of dedicated storage on electricity grids from a scientific perspective.
Large scale electricity storage is making a come-back because it can contribute to the flexibility which is needed by system operators to manage the increasing penetration of variable renewable electricity generation on the grid. At the same time, the interest of householders in small scale storage for self-consumption has already led to more than 40,000 small household PV plus battery systems being installed in Europe since 2013, mainly in Germany.
