CIC energiGUNE, a reference research centre in Europe in the field of electrochemical and thermal energy storage, will take active part in BatteRIes Europe, the European forum set to coordinate all research activities for the development of the battery of the future. The platform was presented last Tuesday in Brussels by the Vice-President of the European Commission for Energy Union, Maroš Šefčovič, with the aim of becoming the meeting point for the entire value chain of battery research and industry in Europe.
Furthermore, the Basque CIC will have an outstanding presence in BatteRIes Europe, as it has been designated to co-lead the Working Group on Stationary Battery Application and Integration. This responsibility will fall on Javier Olarte, Technology Transfer Manager at CIC energiGUNE. The main objective of the Group will be to identify research and innovation challenges in this field and, specifically, to develop solutions for integration into the electricity grid and its different applications, as well as to determine priorities and technological needs.
