WEBINAR: Energy Storage Policy Development in the EU and UK

Energy Storage is emerging as a key enabling technology for low-carbon sustainable energy transitions, the large-scale integration of intermittent renewable energy sources into energy systems and the development of distributed energy resources. Major initiatives are taking place around the world to encourage and facilitate the development and utilization of energy storage technologies.

The European Union, including Germany, and the United Kingdom as well as the United States have emerged leaders in policy development around energy storage. Our speakers will include:


Dr. Jan Ole Voss, Lawyer, Becker Büttner Held, Germany

Dr. Voss is a German-qualified lawyer who specialises in EU and German energy and infrastructure law. He regularly advises clients on the regulatory framework for energy generation and energy storage projects in the EU and Germany.

Mr. Witt graduated from Imperial College London with a First Class Bachelor’s degree and an MSc in Sustainable Energy Futures in 2012. Henry also has an MRes in Energy Demand Reduction from Loughborough University and University College London Energy Institute. At The Climate Group, Henry was responsible for an international energy efficiency policy project to help overcome the regulatory, financial and technical barriers to the uptake of low carbon technologies, during the 2015 Paris Climate Conference. Henry started his Civil Service career at the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) working on energy and carbon reporting policy development and the delivery of three energy efficiency policies for large non-domestic organisations in the UK (with the Environment Agency). Currently, Henry leads on smart innovation in the Smart Energy Systems team in BEIS. This involves collaborating across the Department and with Innovate UK, working on building both a domestic and international innovation policy strategy and landscape of smart innovation competitions.
