Short- and long-term thermal energy storage in a residential setting, new blog by VITO

28th Dec 2018

The energy system of the residential demonstrator in Oud-Heverlee is equipped with different types of hot-water vessels used for thermal energy storage. These storage units offer, combined with the solar collectors, the possibility to increase the production and the self-consumption of locally produced renewable energy. It is evident that mismatches between generation by solar collectors […]

Seminar: Business Models and Regulation for Storage, organized by Vlerick

10th Dec 2018

  The H2020 STORY project demonstrates how energy storage can be used and integrated into current power systems. In a framework where different actors can use storage assets it is essential to identify the business models and regulation that make storage sustainable. How can users at a residential, industrial and network level make use of […]

In-depth interoperability through embedded connected digital twins, new blog by UCL

26th Nov 2018

A digital twin refers to a digital replica of physical assets (physical twin), processes, people, places, systems and devices that can be used for various purposes. In STORY, its in-depth interoperability architecture positions embedded digital twins between reality and service-providing IT such as the actual controls, monitoring, diagnostics, etc. The digital twin is the sole access […]

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.

Creating the Future of Energy Storage

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 case studies"

"STORY explained by partners"

Case studies

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.
