The study involved a description of the technical and economic parameters of the new technologies for energy storage, such as batteries and flywheels, and an overview of their applications. The aim of the study was to identify prospective directions that could be further developed in the form of a pilot project. The contents in brief:

  An overview and comparison of technologies for energy storage

Description and comparison of the main energy storage applications

 An overview of possible sources of financial support for energy storage projects

An outline for a possible pilot project

Recommendations for relevant regulatory agenda

In the Czech Republic this was a pioneering study looking at battery technologies and their applications in the energy sector. However, back in 2012 it was too early to convince investors about a pilot project. It had to wait until 2017.
