Energy Storage Summit: What to expect at the London event

Regulators, policymakers, experts, developers, utilities, aggregators and of course, energy storage industry participants will fill out the Victoria Park Plaza in London next week to discuss everything impacting the deployment of energy storage.   

The third annual Energy Storage Summit takes place between 27-28 February 2018 in London, brought to you by Solar Power Portal publisher Solar Media.

Those confirmed to speak at next week’s event include representatives from distribution network operator (DNO) Western Power Distribution and UK Power Reserve, financiers like Investec, SUSI Partners and Triodos Bank, utilities like EDF and WGL, aggregators such as Limejump and energy storage tech providers including Viking Cold Solutions, ABB and Fluence.

The programme promises a lively mix. National Grid is overhauling how it procures various grid services, the industry continues to lobby for regulatory definitions of energy storage and these issues, along with the technical, financial and legal aspects of the industry, from co-location with renewables to real-world case studies and project data, will engage visitors from the Chair’s Opening Remarks at 9am on Tuesday until the conference adjourns the following afternoon.  

Perhaps the most interesting debate from a UK Solar perspective will be Tuesday’s discussion on co-location strategies, where the likes of Camborne’s Dan Taylor, Anesco’s Steve Shine and Gridserve’s Mark Henderson will tackle the pros and cons of co-locating renewables and battery storage.

All of these topics and more will leap from the pages of our sites and into the auditoriums and conference halls at the Victoria Park Plaza and we urge you to join us for an event that will help set the agenda for discussion across the industry this year.

Last year’s Energy Storage Summit sold-out and there are limited tickets still available for next week’s event. Details on how to book can be found on the Energy Storage Summit website.
