Energy Storage Global Innovation Forum 2016 - Chicago

The need to increase the reliability of solar and wind power, integrate distributed energy resources, and meet new regulatory requirements are compelling energy providers to evaluate options for grid-scale energy storage. In addition, industrial and commercial customers are leveraging on-site storage to reduce demand charges, ensure power quality, and move toward grid independence. Indeed, Navigant Research expects global installed energy storage for the grid and ancillary services to reach 21 GW by 2024 and $15.6 billion in revenue.

The Energy Storage Global Innovation Forum 2016 is a unique opportunity to network with business leaders and technology innovators who are driving today's stationary energy storage market. The conference will examine the latest and most promising advances in grid-level and on-site storage, business models for various deployment scenarios, and success strategies for stakeholders across the energy spectrum. Topics to be addressed include:
  • The most recent stationary energy storage technology advances to date
  • Lessons learned and field data from key pilots and case studies
  • Leveraging storage advances to integrate solar and distributed energy resources
  • Effective project evaluation, design and implementation
  • Business models and applications for solar + storage
  • Energy storage for off-grid and grid-connected microgrids
  • Regulatory and policy developments at the state and federal levels
  • System design, modeling, supervisory control, and EMS integration
  • Current regulatory and market drivers impacting the future of energy storage
  • And more


The Forum will provide attendees with the very latest updates on advanced storage technologies and systems for grid-level applications, as well as next-gen EV / smart transportation.
