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.
