Why You Should Attend

7th Energy Storage and Renewable Integration

Battery storage provides flexibility to the grid systems across the end use applications. It is deployed to aid renewable energy, as their production fluctuates with the unpredictable availability. The grid connected battery storage systems provides uninterruptible power and reduces the energy costs leading to better power management. In the power sector, storage batteries can also be used for electricity frequency regulation. Through enhanced operations of existing generation facilities, energy storage will provide ancillary services such as load following, area regulation and spinning reserve.

The marcus evans 7th Energy Storage and Renewable Integration Conference will discuss the transition into new market opportunities, capital and operational challenges on the electricity grid, and the emergence of intermittent renewable energy generation through support and enhancements of demand respond resources.
