Vision and Objectives

This JP strongly fosters the efficient development of new energy storage technologies and is in strict accordance with the aims of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). It supports the SET-Plan objectives and priorities by “pooling and integrating activities and resources including international partners” on all levels of the value chain. From the collaborations within the JPES and with other joint programmes, synergies result and a long term, durable integration of European research capacities in energy storage are achieved. Strong links to industrial partners support the transfer of research outcomes to innovation and products in order to establish a strategic European leadership in energy storage.
