In the first quarter of 2023, the EU Commission produced a veritable torrent of favorable policy proposals, with the Electricity Market Reform (EMR) at its core and backed by recommendations to the EU Member States to ensure the more wide-spread deployment of energy storage. At the last ees Europe Conference, we discussed these proposals in detail - but what has happened since then? What actions and measures have followed and how effective will they be in unlocking the potential of energy storage?In this panel, we will discuss the state of implementation of the EU energy storage policy, what has gone well, what has not, and what more should be done.
