High-level discussion on energy storage

BRUSSELS. January 31 2019:  Is storage really a cornerstone of the energy transition? 140 industry players, academics and researchers gathered at ENGIE Laborelec, a company of Tractebel BU, to discuss the topic.

What can we expect from energy storage? What technological issues need to be overcome? What are the costs and, crucially, how does it all scale up? Storage is, quite literally, a vital part of the energy transition, but how are we to develop viable strategies to go with the evolving technologies? These issues were fiercely debated on February 8th at ENGIE Laborelec premices in Belgium.

The event, organized in collaboration with the Royal Belgian Society of Electricians, showcased state-of-the-art battery technologies, focusing on practical applications and managing industrial scale storage installations, and was a rare opportunity for a diversified audience of 140 researchers, academics, industrial partners and end users to connect.

ENGIE Laborelec, part of the Tractebel business unit, has long been totally immersed in the research of promising new energy technologies, with recognized authority and increasing influence in energy storage. Dominique Corbisier, ENGIE Laborelec Battery expert: “Everyone involved needs to have the full picture about battery technology potential, and effective decision-making follows from that.”
