Electrical Storage and the Smart Grid vision: The ongoing work at the EERA JP

EERA (European Energy Research Alliance) è un’alleanza su base volontaria, promossa nell’ambito dello Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan e concepita per accelerare lo sviluppo di nuove tecnologie energetiche. A partire dal 2010 sono stati avviati diversi programmi congiunti (Joint Programs – JP), tra cui il JP sulle Reti Intelligenti che è attualmente coordinato da RSE. Nell’ambito del Sotto-Programma 4 (SP4 – Electrical Storage Technologies) è stato pubblicato il primo deliverable (D4.1) del JP con il titolo “Electrical Energy Storage Technology Review”. Il D4.1 affronta il tema della competitività delle tecnologie di accumulo dell’energia e la loro integrazione all’interno delle Reti Intelligenti.

EERA is an alliance that aims at accelerating the development of new energy technologies. It is called for in the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan and the participation is in principle open to all research organizations, furthermore it is completely based on own resources. Since 2010 several Joint Programs (JP) have been launched and nowadays 13 JP are ongoing about many technology issues, for example: Photovoltaic, Smart Grids, Wind, Bioenergy, Materials for Nuclear, Fuel Cells, Energy Storage, Smart Cities. The JP on Smart Grids was launched in June 2010 (among the first Joint Programs launched by EERA) and it is currently coordinated by RSE, involving at the same time 19 institutes from 16 European countries. It is divided into five Sub-Programs (SP), including the SP4 that is devoted to the Electrical Storage Technologies. In the framework of SP4, the first JP deliverable (D4.1) was published as the 109 pages-16 authors (from 8 different partners) document entitled “Electrical Energy Storage Technology Review”. Spanning from Supercapacitors (SC) and Superconductive Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) to Pumped Hydroelectric Storage System (PSH) and Thermal Energy Storage (TES), passing through Flywheels, Conventional and Advanced Batteries, Compressed Air Energy Storage System (CAES), the D4.1 addresses the fast evolution of distribution grids, which, to all intents and purposes, have become Smart Grids by now. This means that a stronger and stronger integration of storage technologies is already required and is going to be required hereinafter, therefore the market seems to prompt storage technologies to decrease in price in order to become definitely competitive and widely used.
