It is our pleasure to inform you that the Sustainable Energy Priority Area (PA2) of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) organises its 6th Stakeholder Seminar entitled ‘Underground energy storage in the Danube Region – possibilities and European perspective’.
The event is jointly organised by the Czech Republic and Hungary, coordinating countries of the Priority Area. The participation is free of charge but previous registration is required.
Date: 4 December 2019
Venue: Art’otel Budapest – 16-19. Bem rakpart, Budapest
Registration: until 1 December via the following link: Registration to the 6th Stakeholder seminar of PA2
Priority Area 2 of EUSDR is focusing on the encouragement of more sustainable energy in line with the EU’s green strategy which particularly emphasizes the increasing spread of renewable energy sources and by this the restructuring of the existing energy system in order to reduce the emission of CO2 and achieve the emission target set in the Paris Agreement. The most critical point in the spread of renewable energy sources is how to store surplus energy, therefore energy storage will become a much more important asset in the future energy system. In order to implement energy storage technologies into the energy system successfully, all available methods and already existing energy infrastructures should be considered.
While the importance of energy storage in future carbon-neutral and environmentally friendly energy systems is well acknowledged, and related research and technological development is already advanced in some European countries (e.g. Germany, France, The Netherlands, Austria), it is still not the case in Central and Eastern Europe. Therefore, the objective of the workshop is to provide the participants a state-of-art of subsurface energy storage from the widest range of perspectives (science and technology, industry, economy, policy) and provide them a possibility to discuss these issues with lead European experts.
