EDSO comments to the Public Consultation on EASE-EERA Energy Storage Technology Development Roadmap
EDSO welcomes the opportunity to comment on the updated Energy Storage Technology Development Roadmap prepared by EASE and EERA. Electricity storage is a key technology that can be used by DSOs to defer grid expansion by making more efficient use of the existing capacity and improving the reliability, quality and affordability of the existing local distribution service.
EDSO advocates the right of DSOs to be able to use and operate own battery based storage applications for the purposes of an efficient grid management, and not only under particular exemptions and circumstances. Our comments refer most notably to the ownership of storage facilities as reflected in ‘Chapter 7 Market Design and Policy Recommendations’.
