The STORY begins!

Kickoff meeting in Helsinki, Finland

The EU-project STORY started officially with a kickoff meeting in Helsinki, Finland. The project coordinator VTT hosted the three-day meeting. The STORY consortium came together to plan the upcoming work and to organise the project work packages.

STORY is a joint project of 18 international partners involved in 8 demonstrations in 6 European countries and is funded under the Horizon 2020 program of the European Commission.

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?
