StoRIES 2021-2025

StoRIES (Storage Research Infrastructure Ecosystem) is a European Green Deal project which brings a consortium of 30 beneficiaries from 15 countries to jointly improve the economic performance of storage technologies. The main objectives of StoRIES are linked to the energy storage development by providing access to world-class research infrastructures and services. StoRIES will establish an ecosystem with international peer partners from research and industry to foster open science and promote new energy technology standards.

StoRIES ambites to:

  • Progress in Transnational Access
  • Develop new services for the Research Infrastructures to new Users
  • Foster hybrid ES innovation
  • Establish a Platform concept for accelerated material design, development and system integration
  • Progress in networking activities
  • Ensure sustainability
  • Foster Innovation Potential

ECCSEL ERIC will contribute to:

  • WP 1: Research and Industrial Energy Storage Ecosystem 
  • WP2: Transnational and virtual access to world-class Research Infrastructures 
  • WP3: Services to support the hybridisation of energy storage
