The aim was to prepare an expert reasoning for the representatives of the Ministry of Industry and Trade who were to initiate a debate on public investment aid with the European Commission. The aid was to assist battery installation projects developed outside the existing support scheme for batteries associated with photovoltaic installations. The contents in brief:

 Overview of the relevant battery energy storage applications at the commercialisation stage

 Description of the economic assessment model

Estimate of the market impact of the possible new subsidy scheme

Verification of the scheme adequacy via discussions with stakeholders (experts in the field) 

Draft report for the purpose of the initial communication with the European Commission

The output was to initiate communication with the European Commission at the beginning of 2018. Even though the original objective was to try and secure aid during the 2014-2020 programme term, it is unrealistic to expect possible support until the subsequent period (2021-2027).
