Description of the Working Group and Objectives
Integration of storage into the electricity grid
A lot of initiatives on storage are ongoing in Europe. Currently, over 99% of the storage capacity is still based on hydro systems. However, other technologies like batteries, flywheels, compressed air storage, chemical storage… receive considerable attention as well.
This working group provides a vision of the future for each of these technologies, taking into account the challenge of integrating the specific technology in the grid. The cost and economic benefits of the storage solution is a crucial parameter that is considered as well.
