ACI’s 5th National Grid-Scale Energy Storage

Date: 20th November 2019 - 21st November 2019 Location: Albany - New York - USA
5th Annual Grid-Scale Energy Storage Conference Examining Increased Reliability, Sustainability, and Performance of Large Scale Storage Facilities

Since its first implementation almost one hundred years ago, the concept of Grid-Scale Energy Storage has provided communities with increased energy reliability and lower energy costs. With the growing integration of and preference for renewable energy sources, as well as the growing demand for power in general, the need for energy storage methods to maintain consistent supply and increase efficiency grows as well. Although there are many storage methods currently available, and still more being developed, choosing the best method and successfully implementing a project can be daunting without the right experience. Join us for ACI’s 5th National Grid-Scale Energy Storage Conference, taking place in Albany, New York on the 20th and 21st of November, and learn from the experts how to address these challenges!
