The JP on Energy Storage strongly fosters the efficient development of new energy storage technologies and is in strict accordance with the aims of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). It supports the SET-Plan objectives and priorities by “pooling and integrating activities and resources including international partners” on all levels of the value chain. From the collaborations within the JP ES and with other joint programmes, synergies result and a long term, durable integration of European research capacities in energy storage are achieved. Strong links to industrial partners support the transfer of research outcomes to innovation and products in order to establish a strategic European leadership in energy storage.

The JP on Energy Storage is structured in six sub-programmes:

  • SP1 Electrochemical Storage (Batteries, Supercapacitors) Coordinator on duty: E. Sheridan (SINTEF, Norway)
  • SP2 Chemical Storage (N and C based fuels) Coordinator: L. Bedel (CEA, France)
  • SP3 Thermal Storage (Advanced Fluid, Phase Change Materials, Thermochemical Heat Storage) Coordinator: A. Seitz (DLR, Germany)
  • SP4 Mechanical Storage (Hydro, Fly Wheels, Compressed Air) Coordinator: A. Harby (SINTEF, Norway)
  • SP5 Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (Materials, Technology, Applications) Coordinator: X. Granados (CSIC, Spain)
  • SP6 Energy Storage Techno-Economics (MARKAL Model) Coordinator: P. J. Hall (University of Sheffield, United Kingdom)
