The potential size of the grid-scale energy storage market segment is very large in the many hundreds of billions of dollars. The electric energy sector will increasingly add on energy storage to enhance its generating capacity with the addition of necessary storage capacity and when one considers the size of the potential global market it is easy to understand why so many venture capitalists and energy storage startups are hoping to get even a small piece of what promises to be a very large pie.
Cost effective energy storage yields better asset utilization and well as the reduction of environmental damage from traditional energy generation, and now is becoming a reality due to economic and technological advances in bulk energy storage systems.
Attend ACI’s 4th National Grid-Scale Energy Storage Conference, June 6-7, 2018, San Francisco, CA to discover the significant market opportunities for energy storage, including government policy and regulatory initiatives, new requirements for transmission and distribution of power in electric markets, increased utilization of distributed energy systems and the integration of storage into smart grid platforms.
This three-day conference will cover all aspects of the implementation of energy storage technologies as a key enabler of grid modernization, addressing the electric grid’s most pressing needs by improving its stability and resiliency. Investment in energy storage is essential for keeping pace with the soaring demand for electricity.
Site Visit One: Eos Energy Storage
During the afternoon of Tuesday 5 June 2018 a limited number of conference attendees will have the opportunity to attend an exclusive site visit at PG&E’s Smart Grid Lab, a unique smart grid testing lab provides prototyping and proof of concept for Pacific Gas and Electric deployments. The San Ramon, California, U.S., facility serves as home to more than 120 engineers, scientists and technicians committed to providing value for the utility’s customers. They provide engineering and testing services for the utility’s power generation, electric operations, gas operations and customer care lines of business, and serve as PG&E’s one-stop engineering services shop for the more than 2,500 incident investigations, dam inspections, failure analyses and nondestructive equipment examinations that occur every year at PG&E. There is no extra charge to join the site visit, although places are limited and allocated to conference delegates on first come first served basis. Therefore, we would strongly suggest to book your place early to avoid disappointment.
Site Visit Two: Primus Power
Primus Power is a provider of low-cost, long-life and long-duration energy storage systems. The Company’s flow batteries are shipping to U.S. and international commercial/industrial, data center, microgrid, utility, and military customers. The Factory Tour will highlight Primus Power’s technology, manufacturing and operation activities. It will feature EnergyPod 2 systems that are customer ready. It will also highlight Primus’ internal microgrid.
