Save the Date: Highlights of Energy Research 2021 "Energy storage - key element to energy transition"
The increasing use of fluctuating renewable energy sources as well as decentralization of the energy generation call for new approaches for energy distribution and storage. Innovative technologies for energy storage and flexibilization of energy demand play an important role as key technologies on the way to a decarbonized energy system.
The event "Highlights of Energy Research" launched by the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) this year focuses on the topic "Energy storage". Activities of the IEA Energy Storage Programme (Energy Storage TCP), the market analysis of energy storages in Austria as well as various research projects are presented, which cover a wide range of topics from battery development to large-scale heat storage and sector coupling. A panel discussion on the relevance of different energy storage technologies in decarbonisation strategies of three European countries will complete the programme.
The event will be held in conjunction with the IEA Energy Storage TCP's international Exco-Meeting. The TCP is engaged in research, development, implementation and integration of energy storage technologies to optimise the energy efficiency of all kinds of energy systems and to accelerate the expansion of renewable energy technologies.
This event is aimed at energy experts and interested parties from industry, science, politics and administration.
Depending on the Corona situation in November, the event will be held either as a face-to-face event, hybrid or online.
Details of the programme will be published at the beginning of October.
