Now in its fourth year, the Energy Storage Summit has been supporting the deployment of this world-changing set of technologies in the UK and beyond since it began and it returns in just a few weeks’ time for the 2019 edition.
The 2018 event saw the industry come together in London and our editorial team was able to report a huge amount of exclusive news and commentary that emerged. That’ll happen again this year, but if you really want to hear the latest insights first-hand and meet many of the names and faces behind the stories and projects that make the news, the only way to do that will be by attending the show.
It takes place on 26 and 27 February 2019, once again at Victoria Park Plaza in the centre of England’s capital. We expect a similar number of attendees to last year, when more than 350 delegates were welcomed over two days.
It’s fair to say the scope of the event is changing each year, as the market itself changes. The Energy Storage Summit programme is designed to both respond to the market’s dynamics as well as itself helping set the agenda with forward-thinking technology sessions and case studies.
There’s been a growth in importance of behind-the-meter energy storage, not just in the UK but in many parts of the developed world. That is to say, there’s been widespread recognition that there’s a lot more potential in energy storage systems deployed to benefit individual households or businesses than we often recognise. Companies working to deploy and connect these systems, or to aggregate them together to unleash their full capabilities such as Kiwi Power and Pivot Power will be on-hand to talk about these topics.
There’s also been a wave of finance activity – although in all honesty there remains a lot of work to be done to get the finance community on-board and au fait with energy storage. Again, the likes of Wermuth Asset Management, Ingenious Capital and First Imagine will be representing that community. There’s no doubt there’ll be a lively two-way flow of information and views with the energy storage industry there.
The Energy Storage Summit 2019 will be a huge gathering from across the industry, from heavyweights, utilities and big generators to nimble start-ups and upstarts with new ideas. Download the programme now or make an enquiry with our sales team, who will be delighted to help you choose the best delegate ticket deal or sponsorship package. But act now, because as with the previous editions, we expect it to be a sell-out show!
Energy Storage Summit 2019 takes place at Victoria Park Plaza, London on 26-27 February 2019. Visit the website for more information and to download the agenda.
