Welcome to the EASE website!


EASE stands for European Association for Storage of Energy 

The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) is the voice of the energy storage community, actively promoting the use of energy storage in Europe and worldwide.

EASE actively supports the deployment of energy storage as an indispensable instrument within the framework of the European energy and climate policy to deliver services to, and improve the flexibility of, the European energy system.

EASE seeks to build a European platform for sharing and disseminating energy storage-related information.

EASE supports the transition towards a sustainable, flexible and stable energy system in Europe.

GRID+STORAGE Project EC Funded

The Grid+Storage consortium is pleased to announce the first regional workshop that will be held in Lille (France) on 25th and 26th November 2015

This first workshop, that will address Belgium, France and The Netherlands, is a unique opportunity to interact with network operators and energy storage stakeholders about the scope and contents of the future Research and Innovation roadmap about energy storage integration in the future electricity networks.

All stakeholders involved in R&I activities about smart grids and energy storage integration in the power system are invited to attend this workshop. National R&I projects representatives will be invited to join a labelling process where the European added value of their activities will be identified.

The registration is free. Limited number of seats: registrations on a first-come-first-served basis.

For more information and to register, please go to the project website


Contact the Secretariat if you need more information.

The EASE members have agreed upon a definition of Energy Storage for the Electricity Vector.

An “Energy Storage Facility” for the electricity vector is a facility used for the intake and stocking of electricity in different suitable energy forms. The release of this energy, at a controlled time, can be in forms that include electricity, gas, thermal energy and other energy carriers.

EASE responded to ACER’s call for comments on the Network Code on Emergency and Restoration

Key messages
EASE, the European Association for Storage of Energy, calls for a level playing field for all the services energy storage can render to the system:

  • through a definition that recognises energy storage as an own asset class in all electricity related regulations and that does not restrict its application to system balancing only;

  • through the recognition of energy storage not only as a load but also as a power source capable to contribute to the Frequency Deviation management procedure;

  • through a non-discriminatory consideration of and a fair treatment for energy storage at national level alongside other measures.

The Grid+Storage consortium is pleased to make public its Initial Integrated R&D Implementation Plan 2016-2018, in which, for the first time, energy storage has been integrated into R&D activities of power network operators.

Stakeholders are welcome to provide their views on how storage has been integrated into the different clusters of the EEGI roadmap and are kindly invited to fill in the online questionnaire.

Please read the Initial Integrated IP 2016-2018 carefully before answering the questionnaire.

You may access the online questionnaire here. The public consultation will be running until 12 May 2015.

Note: you need to answer all the questions at once.




EASE is part of consortium supporting the European Commission in defining an integrated R&D strategy in smart grids and energy storage.
