US-EU Energy Council initiative: European Union and U.S. define strategic goals for research on energy storage

Oct 25, 2010

Experts from Europe and the United States have agreed on strengthening cooperation in the research on energy storage for power grids. Following a two-day, high-level workshop in Washington (DC) they stressed the importance of energy storage technologies for a sustainable energy system. Up to now, lack of cost-effective energy storage on power grids is regarded as the biggest obstacle for harnessing the potential of renewable energies. Also innovative material solutions are needed for the efficient storage and release of energy. (Source: European Commission)
