The importance of collaboration and partnership to facilitate renewable integration and enhanced grid resilience as well as the role energy storage will have in future electricity systems, including promoting energy independence, reduce carbon emissions as well as an option to resolve issues of grid resiliency and reliability. Discussion will include best practices for measuring, quantifying and reporting the performance, reliability, applications and safety of energy storage systems


Lack of dispatch ability in generally considered as the major drawback of renewable energy such as PV solar and wind. The highly intermittent energy generated by PV solar and wind power plants is already posing a major challenge for grid operators, while the share of renewable in the energy mix continues to rise. The industry is now increasingly looking towards energy storage often in combination with smart-grid solutions to be able to manage this challenge efficiently. Energy storage can be instrumental for emergency preparedness with its ability to provide backup power as well as grid stabilization services, including its importance as a tool in managing grid reliability and resiliency by regulating variable generation and improving micro-grid and smart-grid functionality. In addition, energy storage can play a significant role in maintaining a robust and resilient electricity delivery system and addressing climate change by integrating more energy from renewable sources and enhancing efficiency from non-renewable energy processes by improving the operating capabilities of the grid, lowering cost and ensuring high reliability as well as deferring and reducing infrastructure investments. Alternatively, the expansion of the electricity system can be accelerated by the widespread deployment of energy storage since storage can be a critical component of grid stability and resiliency.

As such, World Energy Storage Technology Conference 2015 will discuss critical issues and update on how energy storage technology can help contribute to overall system reliability as large quantities of wind, solar and other renewable energy sources continue to be added to generation assets, furthering the goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing energy security. In addition, ample time has been set aside to share perspective on deployment of energy storage and enhancing renewable penetration. Discussion will also include energy storage as an effective option to resolve issues of grid resiliency and reliability, including resolution of grid benefits of energy storage to guide technology development and facilitate market penetration. Delegates will have an opportunity to share perspective and update on planning and implementing energy storage projects, latest developments in technologies and tools to guide the evaluations of energy storage opportunities, development of a protocol to measure and report performance of energy storage technology as well as the importance of collaboration and partnership to facilitate renewable integration and enhanced grid resilience with an update on the extent and range of energy storage system deployment across Asia Pacific, Middle East, Europe and the region.

This is the only conference that will provide delegates with latest market information to discover new technologies to improve cost and performance of grid energy storage, spur technology innovation and incorporation into improved storage products, remove unnecessary barriers to deployment, and facilitate the establishment of industry-wide standards to ease widespread adoption of storage, thus help to catalyze the timely, material and efficient transformation of energy system and secure leadership in clean energy technologies. Register today to secure collaboration and partnership to facilitate renewable integration and enhanced grid resilience as well as be part of the key players to enhance the role energy storage will have in future electricity systems including to bring to the discussion on ways to resolve major challenges that are hampering widespread deployment of grid energy storage.
