Energy Storage Technologies: Batteries, Supercaps and Electrolyzers, part I

The new Green Deal will be the important priority of the European Commission. Moreover, by 2050, renewables could reach as much as 87% of the electricity mix, with wind and solar playing a dominant role. Cheap renewables and flexible demand will pave the way at a better exploitation of all storage technologies. Batteries and supercaps, together with hydrogen will have a pivotal role to shift the European power system away from fossil fuels and nuclear power to a cleaner society around variable renewables and emissions-free energy. In these two sessions an overview on national research on those broad topics will give and insight of which are the main area of research and will set the table for future guide lines and research roadmaps.
