In order to remove obstacles for storing energy in batteries, an innovation deal was signed in Brussels. Companies in the Lombok district of Utrecht have been working on this since 2015, but the use of old batteries is still hampered by European rules.
Reuse of batteries must comply with European environmental regulations, as a result of which large-scale storage of electricity is not attractive. The regulations for linking batteries and electric cars to the local energy grid are also unclear.

EU deal signed for the Utrecht district (the Netherlands) 

State Secretary Mona Keijzer (Economic Affairs and Climate) signed the agreement together with the EU Commissioners for Environment and Innovation, the Utrecht initiator Robin Berg of LomboXnet and the province of Utrecht. In addition, the French companies Renault and Bouygues and the French ministers for the Environment and Economy put their signatures under it.

Important step

The project is one of the two innovation deals that the European Commission has selected from 32 proposals. "An important step", says Keijzer. ''The exchange, storage and later use of renewable energy by using electric cars or re-used batteries in your own neighborhood is a striking example of a local, innovative solution for the worldwide challenges of making energy and transport more sustainable ", says the minister.

Opportunities

"The fact that the European Commission chooses this Utrecht innovation as a test demonstrates the economic opportunities of this development," says Keijzer. Entrepreneur Robin Berg of LomboXnet sees growth opportunities in the use of batteries of electric cars in the energy grid. '' This cooperation helps to be able to do this on a larger scale in the future and to make Europe lead in this.'
