On the 3rd of March, 2016, the ESNL general meeting of members was held at the brand-new building of research institute Differ in Eindhoven. By means of a tour, host Erik Langereis explained the core focus of research at Differ.

ESNL chairman Jillis Raadschelders updated members about the most recent energy storage developments in Europe. He emphasised the importance of creating awareness about the value of storage on a European level, and argued that Brussels needs to communicate an unambiguous message in order to achieve a level playing field.

ESNL’s latest member, Stedin, gave a presentation about the USEF framework and its importance. John Hodemaekers, innovation manager at Stedin and USEF chairman, pointed out that the core of the framework lies with (the value of) flexibility. Netbeheer Nederland was represented by Edwin Edelenbos, who discussed the challenges of energy storage and its inclusion in regulatory frameworks. Koen Broess of DNV GL informed members of GRIDSTOR, a best practice for the realisation of investment projects in the storage sector.

Throughout the afternoon, knowledge acquisition and sharing were key. High attendance figures turned the meeting into a great success. Speaker presentations can be downloaded via the links below.
