Innovations in Storage Technology

European view on battery storage

14 July 2015, 4:30PM - 5:30PM, CET

LAUNCH WEBCAST (Click link to launch on-demand webcast replay)

With the increasing impact of renewable energy sources (RES) on the electricity sector, energy storage solutions are essential for the stable and reliable availability of energy and to balance energy supply and demand. This session will give an overview of the European storage development in the field of batteries. Is energy storage mainly driven by the German energy transition or is it a European issue? What are the foreseeable predominant fields of application of battery storage technology from an international perspective.

 

Agenda and presenters panel:

  • Techno-socio-economic assessments of battery technologies in the context of EU´s energy & climate change policy
  • Prof. Dr. Jean-Marie Bemtgen, Energy Directorate, European Commission
  • How low can we go? - A European view on cost potentials of stationary batteries
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Michael Stelter, Deputy Institute Director, Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS
  • Energy storage use case in the international context
  • Christian Mayr, Sonnenbatterie GmbH
