Advocate for energy storage

Energy Storage NL represents the broad energy storage industry to governments and external stakeholders. We connect companies, network operators, knowledge institutions, governments and financiers in a meaningful way and we remove existing barriers in national and European laws and regulations as much as possible.

Agenda setting

We put flexibility at the top of the political and administrative agenda, for instance through the publication of the National Energy Storage Action Plan. In this action plan we propose concrete ideas to stimulate energy storage in the coming years. Input for this comes from our participants, including through the working groups. We also use this input for our media communications.


We maintain contact with regional, national and European governments and external stakeholders such as other industry associations. This includes contributing to public consultations for new legislation, formulating clear guidelines and standards, and creating support for energy storage.


Energy Storage NL maintains contact with external stakeholders such as Netbeheer Nederland, Holland Solar and other industries. In this way, we promote a common voice for the deployment of energy storage in the energy system of the future. We are also a member of the European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE), where we contribute to the representation of interests in Brussels.
