BSEF contributes to the Battery-based energy storage roadmap (BATSTORM)

BATSTORM has published the final version of the ten-year (2018-2027) research and innovation (R&I) roadmap on battery-based energy storage. BSEF contributed to the roadmap by sharing its views on bromine based energy technologies and market developments for energy storage systems based on batteries.

The roadmap will detail actions that should be taken for the development and deployment of high-performing, cost-effective and environmentally friendly battery energy storage in the EU energy system and to established EU industrial capacity and leadership in the global battery sector.

The scope of the project are stationary rechargeable batteries with an energy content higher than 5 kWh, including the necessary systems for battery management, and interfaces for grid connection.

The final version of the Roadmap for R&I and accompanying measures 2018-2027 as developed within the BATSTORM project is available on its website. You can view or download it here.
