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.

 


 

EASE responded to the Public consultation of DG Energy on the Retail Energy Market.

Key messages
EASE, the European Association for Storage of Energy, calls for:

  • a non-discriminatory consideration of and a fair treatment for energy storage alongside other measures, such as demand side management and the increase of interconnection capacity, when considering possible solutions for enhanced grid flexibility, stability and quality;
  • a market design that allows specialised energy storage operators to emerge, as long as this does not trigger market distortion.

EASE responded to the Public consultation Paper of the Services of DG Competition containing Draft Guidelines on environmental and energy aid for 2014-2020

Key messages
EASE, the European Association for Storage of Energy, welcomes the draft Guidelines on environmental and energy aid for 2014-2020, in particular the recognition that:

  • climate and energy policy have become increasingly intertwined;
  • a robust state aid control is a must if we are to achieve a well-functioning internal energy market;
  • goals of increased environmental protection and a competitive, sustainable and secure energy system should be primarily attained through instruments designed in a market oriented, non-discriminating and technology-neutral manner;
  • electricity storage will contribute to provide services and value to the entire energy system.

EASE also takes this opportunity to provide feedback, offer expertise and ask for a level playing field for all energy storage technologies in a constructive dialogue with the European Commission (EC).

EASE Publications

EASE proudly presents its first Activity Report 2011-2012.

To give a thorough understanding of EASE, you will be guided through the first steps of its existence: you will be introduced to the way EASE works, the most important milestones of 2011 and 2012, as well as different activities EASE undertook in that period and, of course, its members.

Energy storage often raises a lot of questions. Therefore a chapter of this report is dedicated to answer the most frequent ones.
