Project: New energy storages promoting sustainable energy transition in societies

Acronym New STEPS (Reference Number: 98371)
Duration 01/07/2020 - 30/06/2023
Project Topic This project gathers a complete entity around new energy storages fulfilling the objectives of the MICall19. The project encompasses all the three layers in the three-layer research model: technology, market and stakeholders. At core of the technology layer are a pumped hydro storage and a seasonal heat storage. The pumped hydro storage demonstration is partly funded with this scheme while the heat storage’s funding focuses on feasibility studies. The effects of the storages to the energy system are comprehensively studied. System analysis is combined with a research on multi-objective business models of the storages, and with replicability and scalability analyses in other locations. The storage analyses are combined to other storage technologies as well. With skillful communication and dissemination, the project aims to establish a positive attitude among the stakeholders making the execution of the project easier and making the efforts against climate change visible to the public.
