ESTMAP (Energy Storage Mapping and Planning), a European Horizon 2020 project, was finalised at the end of last year. Most ENeRG partners participated in its realisation, contributing especially to the creation of the first European database of energy storage sites and future potential. The database includes comprehensive and publicly available information about subsurface structures and rock formations suitable for storage of various energy carriers.
Main ESTMAP results are now available online on the project web at The contents of the European energy storage database can be accessed and evaluated using an online and interactive ESRI GIS platform.
Project results prove the importance of large-scale energy storage in planning of future energy systems in the new, carbon-constrained world.
