StoRES aims to increase the PV penetration in the energy mix of islands and rural areas in the MED by integrating PV and energy storage systems under an optimal market policy by removing the constraints of grid reliability. The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund, through the Interreg MED programme.
Smart solutions will be tested in 5 MED islands and rural areas with the objective to remove the current constraints of grid reliability and RES intermittency.
The challenge is to achieve high PV penetration by solving all market/technical/grid/tariff issues without compromising grid stability or security of supply.
StoRES focuses on 7 EU countries, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain.
- Identification of barriers (technical and policy) regarding grid integration of energy storage systems.
- Development and validation of an improved self-consumption policy.
- Pilot demonstration of integrated PV and ES systems in rural areas and islands.
- Development of an online storage system tool.
