The rationale behind choosing the theme of “Storage” for the Visionary Seminar on December 7 is the crucial role that will be played by different forms of Storage to enable the Energy Transition with a prominent role of Renewables (wind, solar, ...).

This means that, besides sketching what is the technological Roadmap (don’t be scared to look sufficiently far and to have a “bold” vision) for the development of these different forms of storage, it is important to provide a picture what is the role to be played by the form of storage you are dealing with in the Energy Transition and to sketch the opportunities at several aggregation levels. This could also mean that all the messages are not necessarily convergent but this is not a major issue as it could be the start of an interesting discussion after the presentations
