stoRE: Facilitating Energy Storage to Allow High Penetration of Intermittent Renewable Energy
The stoRE project has been funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe programme (see full list of projects funded in the 2010 call here) to examine non-technical barriers to developing energy storage across Europe. The project is led by Wirtschaft und Infrastruktur Planungs of Germany and UCC-SERG will lead the workpackage examining environmental barriers to energy storage. Malachy Walsh and Partners, the well-established Irish engineering consultancy will be major contributors to this workpackage. stoRE commenced in May 2011 and will run until 2014. A major energy storage stakeholder workshop will be held in Ireland as part of the project, which will also lead to the development of best practice guidance for developers of energy storage projects across Europe.
