Why do we think this is necessary?
Because the world needs more energy. The population is increasing, they need more energy and we need to think about how we can storage it best.
STORY wants to demonstrate and evaluate innovative approaches for energy storage systems. The challenge is to find solutions, which are affordable, secure and ensure an increased percentage of self-supply. The project consists of eight different demonstration cases each with different local / small-scale storage concepts and technologies, covering industrial and residential environments. These demonstrations feed into a large-scale impact assessment, with the central question being:
“What could be the added value of storage in the distribution grid?”
STORY is about showing the added value storage can bring for a flexible, secure and sustainable energy system. The demonstrations therefore compose the key activity on which all further analysis builds. Each of the demonstrations brings a different technology, context or business case. Together they provide a profound basis to feed into the large scale impact analysis. In order to research and demonstrate the impact of introducing more storage capacity into the grid, 18 institutions from 8 countries have teamed up to create STORY, which is funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation of the European Union.

In April 2016 the STORY consortium came together for the third work meeting in Pamplona, Spain. CENER welcomed all project partners. Besides discussing the current state of work, the whole STORY team had the opportunity to visit Cener’s microgrid in Sanguesa and learn about the demonstration of the P2P SmarTest project, in which CENER is […]Read more
Johanna Pucker and Heribert Vallant (JOANNEUM RESEARCH) presented STORY at the 14th Symposium on Energy Innovation in Austria. It was the first time the Horizon 2020 project STORY was presented in Austria. Johanna Pucker presented the main objectives of STORY and gave a short overview on the demonstration cases. Heribert Vallant described the supporting role […]Read more
My visit to the Energy Institute and Electricity Research Centre Annual Symposium 2015 and to the DREAM Winter school: Distributed intelligence for Smart Grids How does the information received affect my work with STORY? The application of small scale storage that is the focus of STORY dos not happen in vacuum. The developments of the […]Read more
