COGEN Europe is pleased to announce its upcoming Annual Conference & Dinner 2012.
Energy storage in the Energy Union: The standards we need
Energy security and sustainability are key priorities in the process of transforming the energy systems across the EU. There is a need for flexibility and adaptability and new energy market designs reflecting the contribution of strengthened interconnections, of smarter energy grids, demand management and energy storage.
Storage will be a key component of the new energy markets, supporting supply in matching the demand and modulating the demand in order to make optimal use of generation and grid assets at any moment in time. Storage becomes today a more prominent determinant of the characteristics of the new energy system, ensuring the balance between centralized and distributed power generation as well as supporting the increasing need for flexibility. It will play this function complementing demand management, flexible generation and smart grids. To enable storage playing its role in a cost-effective way there is a need to balance technological and regulatory developments.
Contribute to an intensive one day event with keynotes and panel discussions. This seminar is an opportunity to:
- share knowledge and learn about the existing approaches, technologies and developments in relation to energy storage;
- contribute to define the framework that would support the development and the implementation of a consistent and large energy storage capacity onto the grids to enable large renewables integration, and how standardization can help.
The seminar intends to gather technology providers, professionals from Energy Storage, Transmission and Distribution Systems Operators (TSOs and DSOs), energy suppliers, policy makers and consumers to share common challenges and needs.

The debate around shale gas development in Europe remains in its infancy, however it is seen by many as a “game-changer” in terms of energy security, tackling climate change and in facilitating the development of renewables (as a best placed partner).
Renovating the existing EU building stock is a real economic opportunity for Europe. It is a revenue-generating
activity which contributes to urban renewal, strengthens social cohesion, boosts economic growth by creating
