Energy Storage

European energy security needs energy storage

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has exposed Europe’s fossil energy dependence. We welcome the European Commission’s strategy to phase out Russian fossil fuel dependence through the REPowerEU plan. The plan rightly identifies renewables, especially wind and solar, as key technologies to decrease Europe’s dependence on Russian oil, gas, and coal by providing renewable electricity and heating to our homes, cars, and industries.

The dispatchable fossil generation we use today to balance the energy system is inconsistent with Europe’s climate, energy independence, and security of supply ambitions. 

 

What is urgently needed now is the massive and rapid roll-out of critical enabling technologies in the energy sector, notably energy storage solutions.

 

Looking at the crisis we find ourselves in now, we need to fast-track a new generation of clean technologies without which energy independence from Russia will remain elusive.
