storageforumberlinYesterday NOBEL GRID participated in the 4th Residential Energy Storage Forum, which takes place between 8-12 May in Berlin, to discuss about whether the energy market need customer storage incentives to reach the desired outcomes from residential energy storage.

Lola Alacreu, coordinator of NOBEL GRID, participated in the panel session: “To What Extent Does The Market Need Customer Storage Incentives To Achieve The Desired System Outcomes From Residential Energy Storage?”.

This panel session brought together an impressive array of panellists – including Andreea Strachinescu, Head of Unit of New Energy Technologies, Innovation and Clean Coal of the European Commission, Roberto Zangrandi ,Secretary General of EDSO Smart (Belgium), Oytun Alici, Head of Electricity Market Department from Energy Market Regulatory Authority (Turkey),  Cedric Thoma, Green Technologies Policy Officer of the French Ministry for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, and Veli-Pekka Saajo, Director of Energy Authority (Finland).

During the session, the speakers put emphasis on the current barriers to develop a solid residential energy storage, such as the current cost of batteries, legislation and market system.

But also, they pointed out the need and the importance of putting the consumer at the centre of the European energy system, as well as, the key role of the local communities and the electric cooperatives, actors with whom NOBEL GRID works.

All these conclusions and opinions were in line with the European Commission’s legislative proposal “Clean Energy for all Europeans” published on November 30, 2016.
