The aim

Integrate innovative energy storage systems

The European Commission’s Long-Term Strategy illustrates several ways in order to reach a decarbonisation level of over 80%. The European power system has to deal with the residual load variability, on all timescales: from frequency response to inter-year flexibility. The main solutions to provide flexibility are networks, demand-response, dispatchable and flexible power generation technologies, and mainly energy storage. The use of innovative technologies associated with energy storage is of primary importance for the clean energy transition. Sustainability and circular economy approach for storage innovations will minimize the environmental impact.

  • SINNOGENES project primary aim is to develop the Storage INNOvations (SINNO) energy toolkit, which is a complete framework of methodologies, tools and technologies that will enable the grid integration of innovative storage solutions, while demonstrating sustainability, technical performance, independence from cost and geographical characteristics. It will utilize successful energy storage business cases and systems at different scales and timeframes.

  • SINNOGENES will effectively integrate innovative energy storage systems and value chains at the interface of renewable energies and specific demand sectors, while safeguarding the compatibility of systems and ensure the standards of distributed energy storage for participation in flexibility markets.
