The Grid+Storage consortium is glad to announce the publication of their draft research and innovation (R&I) roadmap 2016-2025, integrating for the first time energy storage issues into electricity network activities.
The development of this integrated roadmap has been based on a thorough monitoring of past and ongoing research projects and on the gathering of research and innovation needs identified by European stakeholders during 9 regional workshops.
All stakeholders of the electricity value chain and of other energy networks are invited to provide feedback about the detailed activities foreseen in the roadmap which should drive the energy storage and smart grids R&I strategy at European level for the next decade.
The public consultation is running up to 5 July 2016. Online questionnaires are available onGrid+Storage website.
About Grid+Storage: Complementing the activities performed so far by the European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI) and the Grid+ project, a consortium formed by TECHNOFI, EASE, EDSO, ENTSO-E, RSE and VITO has been selected by the European Commission to support DG Energy and the Member States in defining a European R&D roadmap integrating energy storage into grid research and innovation activities, both at electricity transmission and distribution levels.
