IREC is part StoRIES – a large ecosystem of battery infrastructures

  • Energy storage

The StoRIES project brings together a consortium of beneficiaries like ESFRI facilities, technology institutes, universities and industrial partners to jointly improve the economic performance of storage technologies. Members of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) and the European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) have a long-term history of co-operating with each other and are establishing the core of this world-class European ecosystem.

The main technological objectives of StoRIES are linked to the energy storage development by providing access to world-class research infrastructures and services, with a focus on improving materials for devices and optimizing hybrid energy systems with a view to make energy technologies more competitive and reducing costs. In addition, StoRIES project focuses on the analysis of socio-technical and environmental aspects of new developments and systems and provides training and education on these issues.

By promoting complementary expertise, interdisciplinary cooperation and a broader exchange of knowledge and technologies throughout the academic world and with industry, StoRIES will significantly improve the technological basis for energy storage applications. The existing joint energy storage roadmap of EASE and EERA will be expanded with the aim of optimizing the upgrade and networking of research infrastructures to promote short-term innovations. On top, StoRIES will establish an ecosystem with international peer partners from Research and Industry to foster open science and promote new energy technology standards.

StoRIES kick-off meeting is taking place on 24-25th November both physically in Ulm (DE) and online alongside with the Joint Workshop of StoRIES, JP Energy Storage and SUPEERA project on EU Clean Energy Transition: Perspectives and Challenges for Energy Storage.

The project involves 17 participants and 31 beneficiaries, involving IREC as a subcontractor. The infrastructures provided by IREC belong to the Advanced Materials for Energy (M4E) Laboratory and the PRIMA Platform. You can find more information on the website: and cordis:
