Energy Storage Standardization Roadmap

The objective of the German Energy Storage Standardization Roadmap is to take into account the increasing importance of energy storage systems as part of the energy revolution. In addition to expanding the grid and making power plants more flexible, energy storage systems offer another opportunity to harmonize the generation and consumption of power.

The standardization roadmap is currently only available in German.

The core and cross-sectional topics of the Energy Storage Standardization Roadmap include thermal storage systems for commercial and industrial purposes, thermal storage systems for private applications, electrochemical storage systems like battery storage systems or redox flow batteries, chemical storage systems like power to gas or power to liquid, and mechanical storage systems like pumped-storage power plants and potential energy storage systems.

The standardization roadmap illustrates areas of strategic significance and ideas on how to further develop these areas. The basis thereof is the presentation of the actual state of standardization in order to then identify and close existing standardization gaps.

About the objective and significance of the standardization roadmap

The objective of standardization roadmaps is to inform the stakeholders in the respective subject area of important basic requirements and assist them in meeting them. To achieve this, standardization roadmaps provide an overview of the respective technology topic, in this case energy storage, and the related standardization landscape and its organizational and content-related further development.

For energy storage, standardization roadmaps also allow for the systematic processing of convergent technologies (cross-committee complex topics) and act as a basis for discussion and exchange between the experts from various domains (e.g. automotive, IT, energy). They thus provide for better understanding because they provide all of the participants the same foundation and offer new committee members a subject-related introduction.

Particularly with respect to important subject areas like energy storage, standardization roadmaps emphasizes the need for early development and the significance of the topic of full consensus standardization.

Energy

It is just a big a topic in everyday conversation and societal discourse as it is at DKE: everyone is talking about energy. Our standardization experts don’t just provide their knowledge to make the supply and distribution of energy “smart” and decentralized in the future, they also make an equally large contribution toward the operation of electrical systems and the wide-scale distribution of renewable energies.
