An appropriate deployment of energy storage technologies is of primary importance for the transition towards an energy system. For that reason, this database has been created as a complement for the Study on energy storage - contribution to the security of the electricity supply in Europe.
The database includes three different approaches:
Energy storage technologies: All existing energy storage technologies with their characteristics.
Front of the meter facilities: List of all energy storage facilities in the EU-28, operational or in project, that are connected to the generation and the transmission grid with their characteristics.
Behind the meter energy storage: Installed capacity per country of all energy storage systems in the residential, commercial and industrial infrastructures.
The purpose of this database is to give a global view of all energy storage technologies. They are sorted in five categories, depending on the type of energy acting as a reservoir. Relevant types of data for each technology have been highlighted.
