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.

The […]Read more
The STORY consortium gathered to its fifth general meeting, which was hosted by VITO and Beneens. The two first days of the meeting took place in the premises of EnergyVille, located in Genk, Belgium. EnergyVille is an association of the Flemish research institutes KU Leuven, VITO, imec and UHasselt in the field of sustainable energy […]Read more
28 participants from across Europe convened in Brussels to engage with the STORY team, to discuss the project’s preliminary analysis on innovative energy storage business models, explore the potential of three cases (UK Power Network, Sonnen, and the STORY residential demo site in Belgium), test their sensitivity to future evolutions in the energy market, and […]Read more
