innovative Energy Storage TEchnologies TOwards increased Renewables integration and Efficient Operation
The push towards renewable energy sources (RES) to eliminate the environmentally damaging alternatives is no easy task. The challenges imposed by the intermittent nature of RES require the implementation of novel, efficient energy storage solutions which are still far from being technologically and economically mature. In this context, the EU-funded i-STENTORE project will introduce novel energy storage technologies and propose hybrid energy storage systems that could help push towards the next generation of renewable energy use. Thus, i-STENTORE will create an umbrella framework to assess the most efficient energy storage solutions for various applications and propose innovative tools for their planning and coordinated operation, endorsing interoperability and contributing to their operational optimisation while highlighting the multi-purpose use of storage.
