Working Groups

Four permanent Working Groups have been set up to ensure the involvement and contribution of all the stakeholders of the Energy Storage (ES) technologies, providing vision, inputs, guidance, and continuous feedback for the development of different StoRIES documents, publications, and activities. The Working Groups are:

  • WG1: Roadmap, SRIA and materials intelligence platform 

  • WG2: Selection of call topics 

  • WG3: Transnational Access activities based on the submitted and approved user proposals and the feedback from the users and the RIs 

  • WG4: Technical and non-technical barriers

WG1: Roadmap, SRIA and materials intelligence platform

Chair: Myriam Gil Bardají (KIT)
Co-chairs: TBD1, TBD2

Working Group 1 will provide input and recommendations to the SRIA and the roadmap for hybridisation of ES developed in Task 3.3. The requested input will cover different areas and topics such as the identification of hybrid combinations as well as needs in terms of innovation, research infrastructure, technology development, cost reductions, integration for single technologies and combinations to be viable.

The roadmap and SRIA will gather experience and knowledge from all stakeholders in the StoRIES ecosystem, and use this to identify knowledge gaps and needs for research and innovation in order to make hybrid storage solutions viable.

The roadmap and SRIA will give a set of policy recommendations. The perceived audience will be EU-level officials and funding agencies, SET-Plan members, other national and local bodies, as well as stakeholders in industry, academia and universities.

The roadmap and SRIA will be developed in an iterative process where the documents are drafted by the partners in Task 3.3 and then sent to WG1 and other stakeholders for expert feedback.

WG2: Selection of call topics

Chair: Yannick Wimmer (AIT) 
Co-chairs: TBD1, TBD2

Working Group 2 will undertake several activities relevant to the identification, ranking and launch of the transnational and virtual access call topics including but not limited to the actions listed: 

  • Collection of the preliminary call ideas to identify the problems and gaps in the energy storage

  • Analysis of the ideas, feedback on the possible call topics to redefine the selected call topics 

  • Provision of the ranking of topics according to the expertise within the WG  

  •  Consultations with External Layer, especially with industry, to enable the optimal impact of the project users

  • Final call topic definition and initiation of the promotion of the call

WG3: Transnational Access activities based on the submitted and approved user proposals and the feedback from the users and the RIs

Chair: Olga Suminska-Ebersoldt (KIT)
Co-chairs: TBD1, TBD2

Working Group 3 will oversee the Transnational Access activities based on the submitted and approved user proposals and undertake actions for the reporting on the overall analysis of the Transnational activities. Some of these actions include the following:   

  • Pre-screening of applications before the peer-review process by the Selection Panel  

  • Evaluation, analysis, and dissemination of the projects' documentation within the External Layer and beyond 

  • Providing information resulting from the user projects analysis (gaps, technical barriers, hybrid technologies assessment, needs) to the WG1 and WG4

  • Gathering the feedback from the previous call(s) for the preparation of the following call(s)

WG4: Technical and non-technical barriers

Chair: Mashood Nasir (EASE)
Co-chairs: TBD1, TBD2

Working Group 4 will assess and analyze all the barriers (techno-economic, policies, market & regulation, standardization, social acceptance) that can affect the widespread application of hybrid Energy Storage (ES) technologies. The major task of WG4 will consist in the development of strategies to mitigate the effect of these barriers (e.g. funding programs and supporting research for reducing socio-economics barriers; demonstration projects to overcome community acceptance barriers; scale-up/demonstration support; recognition of storage as an own asset class; remuneration matching value creation: energy security and low emissions; CO2 free balancing requirements; curtailment minimisation incentives).
