Facilitating energy storage to allow high penetration of intermittent renewable energy

Duration: 2001 – 2003 ● Client: European Commission (FP5) ● WIP Expertise: Research and Innovation

WIP was partner of the Investire network which reviewed and assessed existing storage technologies in the context of renewable energy applications to facilitate exchange of information between the main actors and to propose appropriate actions for the future.
