The below is the agenda from the 2023 Energy Storage Summit. If you would like to present a case study or be part of a panel session at our 9th Energy Storage Summit in 2024, then please get in touch with the team today.
What is driving the energy storage industry at the moment, and adversely, what is holding it back? This scene-setting talk will start by looking at the incumbent lithium-ion and focusing on challenges when it comes to decarbonising the mineral, ensuring sustainable production and future availability for the market. We need to have back-up options to ensure we don’t get past the point of no return, with over-reliance on one technology and the market ends up stagnating. Gerard’s talk will set the scene for later discussions around energy security, investment strategies, supply chain issues, differing markets and how the industry can rally together to solve these problems as quickly as possible.
This opening session will shed light on what needs to happen to ensure the power grid is fit for purpose, resilient and flexible.
Microsoft, supported by Enel X, leverage fast responding, grid-interactive UPS systems at Microsoft data centre in Dublin to help balance Ireland’s electricity grid.
Against a complicated backdrop of global politics and economics, how should we see the investment case for energy storage and how is that evolving?
Many companies are looking into the next big opportunities for energy storage. This panel will discuss:
To prevent, discover and react to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks in the supply chain this session delves more deeply into:
Discussion groups on the Italian, German, Polish, Irish, Spanish and Greek energy storage markets.
Italy - What are the possible revenue stacking opportunities for storage in the Italian market? Where are the opportunities and what barriers still exist? There is some uncertainty about the merchant sustainability of investments and the role of long-term remunerations for BESS, but there is still optimism around a new dedicated market for storage developers.
Germany - With a favourable regulatory environment for energy storage making lots of business cases very strong, what is next on the agenda for the country and how can it help strengthen the EU market and work collaboratively, thanks to its geographical placement?
Poland - With solar installations in Poland exceeding 10GW in 2022 for the first time, the general consensus is that storage is the next clear step for the country. With many plans for hydrid storage installations, the country is ramping up for energy storage to take off. This focus on renewable generation coupled with recent proposals in parliament to mandate energy storage makes the Polish market very interesting and one to watch.
Ireland - What is next for this competitive market, as the DS3 service draws to a close in 2023? What is being planned to harness this country with such strong renewable generation, to ensure it stays a competitive and lucrative market for storage?
Spain - With new subsidies recently announced, energy storage installations are expected to increase in the coming years. What should you know if you are planning to expand into the Spanish market?
Greece - Greece has recently garnered a lot of interest for energy storage developers, due to favourable legislation being passed in the country. What new opportunities will the Greek market bring?
In the renewable energy development stampede, where will everyone connect to the grid?
NMC vs LFP vs Iron Oxide vs Sodium Ion…which battery technology is best? This panel debates this by considering:
Join the Modo Energy team at the Steel Yard Club, East London, for the biggest party of the year!
The UK has published its British Energy Security Strategy, which details plans to ensure energy independence in the face of global tensions, complicated geopolitics and an urgent need for change to happen quickly.
Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) promise to smooth out the intermittency of renewable energy production and deliver a consistent, predictable flow of energy to interconnected regional and national grids. However, the dynamic energy market makes it difficult to plan storage capacity and performance needs. A new modular architecture that uses software to dynamically configure and manage storage capacity and performance allows asset owners to quickly respond to changing market dynamics to maximize yield on their assets.
Join a behind the scenes recording with Quentin and a special guest delivering their insightful and fun podcast series live on stage at the Energy Storage Summit, with the opportunity for Q&A afterwards.
Long-duration has been around for a long time, but the urgency to find a scalable solution offering longer-duration and alternatives to lithium-ion energy storage is growing on a daily basis. This opening session will set the scene on what is needed at a policy level, what is already happening and where the market needs to be in the short-term. We will then hear about some of the closer to market technologies in a ‘lightning round’, followed by roundtable discussions with key stakeholders and experts.
Every colocation project is different meaning that there is no one size fits all in terms of best practice for developing projects. Big wins can be made when collocating assets by addressing:
Each energy storage project has unique characteristics including the location and the technologies being used. Consequently, a bespoke approach to protect against fires for each project must be undertaken. This session discusses the best approaches to:
As size and complexity of energy storage projects increase, how is the most value captured through optimisation?
With snowballing issues around grid connections, will we start seeing co-located projects become more favourable and what is the best approach?
A massive thank you to all our Sponsors, Delegates, Partners, Speakers and everyone that attended to make the 2023 Energy Storage Summit the biggest and best yet.
Next year, we will be at the Novotel London West to allow for more people to hear and learn from the top industry experts.
