The EU has announced their 2040 climate goals which includes plans to cut greenhouse gasses by 90%.

“Renewable energy is paving the way for decarbonised energy systems in Europe, and long duration energy storage (LDES) supports this path. We must now build in security, flexibility and resilience with LDES. To do this, an increased ambition including targets for long duration energy storage (LDES) will be absolutely vital in harnessing the full value of renewables to customers.

“We call upon the EU Commission to build on these bold plans and to establish an ambitious roadmap for scaling LDES at pace, by establishing long term LDES targets alongside the emission reduction targets.”
