It is our pleasure to inform you that the Sustainable Energy Priority Area (PA2) of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) organises its 6th Stakeholder Seminar, entitled ‘Underground energy storage in the Danube Region – possibilities and European perspective’, which will be held on the 4th December 2019 in Budapest.
The event is jointly organised by the Czech Republic and Hungary, coordinating countries of the Priority Area.
Priority Area 2 of EUSDR is focusing on the encouragement of more sustainable energy in line with the EU’s integrated climate and energy policies which particularly emphasize the increasing spread of renewable energy sources, and by this, the restructuring of the existing energy systems in order to reduce the emission of CO2 and achieve the Paris Agreement targets. One of the most critical points in the spread of renewable energy sources is how to store surplus energy, therefore energy storage will become a much more important asset in the future energy system. In order to implement energy storage technologies into the energy system successfully, all available methods and already existing energy infrastructures should be considered.
The importance of energy storage in future carbon-neutral and environmentally friendly energy systems is well acknowledged all over Europe. The related research and technological development is already well advanced in some European countries (e.g. Germany, France, The Netherlands, Austria), however it is still in its infancy in Central and Eastern Europe. Therefore, the main objective of the workshop is to provide the participants a state-of-art of subsurface energy storage from the widest range of perspectives (science and technology, industry, economy, policy) and provide them a possibility to discuss these issues with lead European experts.
Please find enclosed the study ’Sustainable Energy Storage Innovations in Danube Region Countries for the EU-Goals of the Paris Climate Agreement’.
Please find enclosed the detailed agenda of the event.
