Event - Grid Scale Energy Storage

ACI's 2nd Grid-Scale Energy Storage will take place on Tuesday 16 June 2015 - Thursday 18 June 2015 in Los Angeles, California. Bloomberg News said, "Annual investment in storage is currently about $2.6 billion…that’s set to grow to $9.2 billion in 2015 and then to $25 billion by 2021. Energy storage (is expected) to generate $500 million to $1 billion in annual revenue by 2020."

Key Topics
  • Energy storage as a long term resource in commercial energy management plans, storage project models, and energy procurement plans to support and compete with conventional generation, transmission and distribution resources.
  • Integrating energy storage with renewable power and connecting to the grid to help operators and utilities turn intermittent unpredictable sources of energy into a reliable resource.
  • Energy storage solutions to create growth in the market for renewable energy by enabling its use in greater volumes and in new applications; reducing costs so new technologies can compete on economic terms.
  • Integrating energy storage with solar and wind and connecting to the grid.
  • Standards, modeling, software integration and cybersecurity awareness.
  • New business models to make, apply, and operate storage assets to allow the gird to work more reliably and cost-effectively while decreasing negative environmental impacts.
  • Developing standards for modeling and regulatory reform and financing grid-scale storage technology in an uncertain marketplace.
  • Grid-scale storage as a regulation service to provide fast and flexible response systems to deal with unmanaged variation due to power plant failures and transmission outages.
  • Determining energy storage solutions while taking into consideration safe technologies, life cycles, cost effectiveness, maintenance requirements, size, efficiencies, discharge rate and depth of discharge.
  • Deploying substation-sited storage, co-locating with renewables, as well as in domains such as community energy storage and residential energy storage.
  • Lessons learned from energy storage pilots and initial commercial deployments; technological and financial case studies.
