WIP, the coordinator of the IndustRE project, participated in the 3rd Annual Workshop of the eStorage project in the 15th of October in the premises of Alstom in Birr, Switzerland.
The project eStorage is funded by the FP7 programme and it aims at demonstrating a variable speed pumped hydro energy storage technology. The workshop was intended for European power market stakeholders to meet and discuss about the project results and what they mean for the role of energy storage in the electricity market. Participants included representatives from the industry, utilities, TSOs and authorities.
The IndustRE project was presented among a discussion on the roles of demand response and energy storage which can be complementary or competitive depending on the circumstances. Michael Papapetrou (WIP) chaired a discussion on the regulatory and market design aspects that affect the offer of flexibility to the European power systems.
