A new energy storage association has been created in Europe aimed at promoting the ways the technology can be deployed across the continent’s grid systems.
The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) brings together manufacturers, utilities and academic bodies that will now act as a ‘coherent voice’ to promote the role of energy storage.
There are 13 founding members of EASE and the group includes heavy hitters such as Alstom, Dong, EDF, Enel and GDF Suez. Also involved are RWE, Siemens and Saft.
The creation of EASE results from an initiative of the European Commission, which looked for ways of creating a consensual vision to move the industry forward.
It is also looking to cooperate with other national and international energy storage organisations, including the Electricity Storage Association in the US.
