DNV GL’s Energy Storage Expertise
DNV GL’s 2,300 energy experts support customers around the globe in delivering a safe, reliable, efficient, and sustainable energy supply. Our energy storage experts work with manufacturers, utilities, project developers, communities and regulators to identify, evaluate, test and certify systems that will integrate seamlessly with today’s grid, while planning for tomorrow. Through our dedicated labs and expertise around the world, we have created an industry-leading combination of analytical and testing experience that gives us a unique advantage in finding energy storage solutions. We provide support across the entire energy storage value chain—feasibility, testing, development and engineering, construction and operation.
The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) is the leading member-supported association representing organisations active across the entire energy storage value chain.
EASE promotes the development of all energy storage technologies to support the transition towards a sustainable, flexible, and stable energy system in Europe. EASE advocates for the creation of a level playing field for energy storage and for policies that can bolster the deployment of innovative technologies and applications.
A key player in energy transition, the EDF Group is an integrated electricity company active across the entire value chain: generation, transmission, distribution, supply, trading and energy services.
A global leader in low-carbon energies and the number one renewable electricity producer in the European Union, EDF has a diversified generation mix centred on nuclear power, hydropower, new renewables and thermal energy.
The Group supplies energy and services to approximately 35.1 million customers, 26.5 million of which are in France. The Group generated consolidated sales of €70 billion in 2017 and is listed on the Paris Stock Exchange.
The energy transition can only succeed with cost-effective electricity storage to provide the flexibility needed for variable generation. EDF is rising to the challenge with its Electricity Storage Plan, under which more than €8 billion will be invested to create, develop and deploy energy storage technologies and systems to boost capacities by 10 GW between now and 2035.
Iberdrola is one of the world’s largest utilities, that produces and supplies electricity to more than 100 million people in the countries in which it operates. Likewise, Iberdrola stands as the largest renewable energy producer among the European utilities, the global leader in onshore wind power and has the cleanest electricity mix in the United States, with nearly zero emissions.
Energy storage is central to Iberdrola "Utility of the Future" strategy.
The International Bromine Council
The International Bromine CouncilRead more
BSEF is the international bromine producers organisation. Since 1997, the organisation has been working to foster knowledge on the uses and benefits of bromine-based solutions.
BSEF strongly believe in science and innovation. Through investments in research and development BSEF members create robust bromine-based technologies meeting the needs of society.Bromine-based storage technologies are a highly efficient and cost-effective electro-chemical energy storage solution, providing a range of options to successfully manage energy from renewable sources, minimizing energy loss, reducing overall energy use and cost and safeguarding security of supply. Typical bromine-based flow batteries include zinc-bromine (Zn-Br) and more recently hydrogen bromide (HBr). Other variants in flow battery technology using bromine are also under development.
The members of BSEF are Albemarle Corporation, ICL Industrial Products, Lanxess and Tosoh Corporation.
