Wind energy will more than double in the period 2010 to 2030 supplying about 30% of the EU electricity
Solar power will grow by a factor of 8 in the period 2010 to 2030 supplying more than 6% of the EU electricity
stoRE facilitates the realization of ambitious renewable energy targets by unlocking the potential for energy storage infrastructure
About the project
stoRE facilitates the realization of the ambitious objectives for renewable energy by unlocking the potential for energy storage infrastructure. Energy storage, as part of an integrated approach including grid reinforcement and demand management helps accommodate higher percentages of variable renewable energy by balancing the supply and demand and improving the power quality.
stoRE contributed in creating the right regulatory and market conditions that gives incentives for the development of energy storage infrastructure to the extent necessary for the accommodation of the planned renewable energy installations to the electricity grid.
All key actors on the European level were involved in a process designed to build consensus about the necessary adaptation of the European Energy framework and policies, developing concrete recommendations and plan their implementation. Similar work was undertaken in the target countries, leading to improvements of the policies, legislation and market mechanisms.
