AlpStore FINAL CONFERENCE and Study Trip, February 26-27, 2015

A great success for the AlpStore final event in the Aosta Valley

The AlpStore final conference was held at the Castle of Bard in the Aosta Valley on February 26th, 2015. Partners from the seven Alpine countries worked together to promote strategies to use storages as mean among others to match the intermittent renewable generation to the energy demand in space and time. Over one hundred people from public administration, business, freelance and research took part in the conference which presented the results of the project and the final guidelines on stationary and mobile storages. The guidelines focused on technology, policy, market and regulation addressing policy makers, companies and practitioners.

A great interest was shown for the Market Place dedicated to the AlpStore pilot projects where participants discussed the experience gained from the real application of storage solutions. The Alpine Space programme continues in 2014 - 2020 and the Action Lab session gave a glance at the future, providing a lot of information and feedbacks on project ideas.
