“The demand for new [renewable energy] capacity and the challenges of balancing costs require appropriate storage solutions. The technology is usually a few steps ahead of the regulations, but in order to stimulate innovation for storage, governments should be more active,” said Dimitar Zwiatkow.

Talking about hybrid projects, Marija Mušec said they are usually a combination of solar and batteries and that they have competitive advantages in the permitting process. “A hybrid project is awarded higher points in a tender for energy approval. This demonstrates that the state has recognized the importance of energy storage for grid balancing and stability,” she said.
