Why & How

StoRES foresees the development of an optimal policy for the effective integration of photovoltaics (PV) and energy storage systems (ESS) via testing smart solutions in 5 MED islands and rural areas. StoRES aims to increase the PV penetration in the energy mix of islands and rural areas in the MED by integrating PV and ESS under an optimal market policy by removing the constraints of grid reliability and RES intermittency. The challenge is to achieve high PV penetration in their energy mix through solving all market/technical/grid/tariff issues without compromising grid stability or security of supply.
