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.

A few months ago in a previous blog, we illustrated with the example of the Spanish pilot plant of the STORY project as regulation can influence the viability of a renewable plant with energy storage. In recent months, with the change of government, the national energy policy is experiencing important changes among which we must […]Read more
STORY was one of the six projects discussed in “The future of energy storage” workshop, which was organised on June 27th 2018 in the context of the International conference Sustainable Places 2018. The aim of the WS was to benchmark the progress of six projects supported by the European Commission which are focused on the […]Read more
The 2018 IEEE PES General Meeting took place in Portland US, from the 5-8. August 2018. The international conference had as technical theme “Re-Imagining the Electric Grid”. The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Power and Energy Society is the largest international organisation in its field. The annual General Meeting attracts more than 3000 participants […]Read more
