The Value of Storage for the Clean Energy Transition

Energy storage is hot. Energy storage is gaining huge momentum with rapidly expanding companies, full commercialisation of technologies, declining costs and increasing customer adaptation. These signal its growing impact on the energy transition. Advances in Europe’s climate and energy policies, market developments and constant innovation, mean that this surge is set to continue.
As the share of renewables rises, the growing need for flexibility in the energy system will benefit from new storage solutions. Emerging technologies like batteries or hydrogen have the potential to transform the way we do business, and the services we provide to consumers. Meanwhile, hydro reservoir and pumped storage still represent the most common technology and largest market shares to date.
Join us in Brussels for a high level Conference to explore the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead as we seek to maximise the potential of energy storage, not only for the power sector but also for industry at large.
The Conference will see speakers exchange on the state of play of energy storage today, and the vision and value potential it can bring tomorrow. What business solutions are expected to be game-changers? Does Europe have an industrial strategy for storage? What opportunities are there for market players and network operators? What about regulatory implications?
Part of the discussions will take the form of “Technology Battles” where power companies and manufacturers will be invited to present state of the art solutions and report on innovation developments.
