Event Description

Business Models and Technology Advances for Optimizing Grid-Scale and Behind-the-Meter Storage

The need to support the rapid growth of solar and wind power, integrate distributed energy resources, and drive system efficiencies are compelling energy providers to evaluate options for grid-scale and distributed energy storage. In addition, industrial and commercial customers are leveraging behind-the-meter storage to reduce demand charges, ensure power quality, and move toward grid independence. Indeed, according to Navigant Research, global annual power capacity additions for utility-scale and distributed energy storage are expected to exceed 50 GW by 2026.*

Co-organized by M-WERC and the Smart Grid Observer, the 2nd Energy Storage Global Innovation Forum, June 12-13, 2018 in Milwaukee is a unique opportunity to network with business leaders and technology innovators who are driving today's energy storage market. The conference will examine the latest and most promising advances in grid-level and on-site storage, business models for various deployment scenarios, and success strategies for stakeholders across the energy spectrum. Both utility-grade storage advances as well as residential / behind-the-meter applications will be examined in depth over the two-day event.

Topics to be addressed include:
The latest grid-level energy storage technology advances to date
Lessons learned and field data from key pilots and case studies
The role of storage in energy security and the Digital Energy Transformation
Residential storage trials and applications
Leveraging storage advances to integrate solar, wind and distributed energy resources
Effective project evaluation, design, and implementation
Business models and applications for solar + storage
Energy storage for off-grid and grid-connected microgrids
Regulatory and policy developments at the state and federal levels
System design, modeling, supervisory control, and EMS integration
Current regulatory and market drivers impacting the future of energy storage

Emphasis on Innovation and Lessons Learned: Through a series of in-depth presentations and panel discussions, the event will examine the most recent technology developments and business models for utilities, energy providers, and end users.

Objective & Authoritative: The Forum agenda is driven by practitioners and executives at a range of leading industry technology companies -- learn directly from the experts who are shaping the future of energy storage.
