The largest USA downstream focused event addressing energy storage

Following the successful launch of Energy Storage Summit USA, we are pleased to announce its return for a 2nd year. Renowned for its quality, breadth and expertise, this event features an all-encompassing range of strategic and technical sessions on the adoption and deployment of storage.

Key market drivers such as the falling price of lithium-ion batteries, investment in electric vehicle infrastructure, FERC Order 841, government incentives, grid modernization, transition from dependency on the networks to a desire for autonomy and intermittent renewable sources, all add to an exciting time for the Energy Storage value chain.

With more than 40 states with operational battery storage projects and more than 5GW of energy storage to be deployed over the next few years, now is the time to discuss how we unlock its full potential.

The Summit plays a pivotal role in the journey to propelling the industry into the next stage of its development, providing an unrivalled platform to develop the right partnerships and create business opportunities of all sizes.

This eco-system event brings together the entire value chain including Utilities, Developers, EPCs, Investors, Manufacturers, Energy storage providers, local government and of course all RTO/ISOs making this one of the must attend storage events for 2020.

2020 Key Themes

Policy, Framework & Regulation

Evolving Storage Models

Finance & Investment Opportunities

Emerging Technology & Innovation

New Revenue Opportunities

How do new storage projects fit into current policy and regulation? What gaps does the public sector need to bridge in order to get the most out of the market? This theme will also cover tackling tariff prices and fuel poverty for consumers.

How can businesses thrive in an ever-changing environment? Merchant battery storage is one example coming to the fore, and the Summit aims to uncover how to take advantage of this model. 

Hear from leading investment firms, private equity funds and asset managers on the viability of energy storage projects. This will include insight on FM vs BM projects, resi-storage and storage-plus-generation.

How are emerging technologies such as IoT, AI, Machine Learning and data being utilised in energy storage? The need to innovate within the energy storage sphere is becoming more apparent in order to overcome barriers and challenges. 

It is extremely important to create visibility around the revenue opportunities across the market, and how all players can best monetise the market. This will also cover market access for new customers – what revenue can a battery asset return and what are the steps to achieve that?

What 2019 Participants Had To Say:

The conference was very informative, entertaining a new and fast forward moving market. Speakers had a vast experience on the subject and were eager to learn and share their experience. Additionally, speakers could see the benefits of Energy Storage for future integration of renewables.

Technical Support Engineer
WEB Aruba NV

The gathering of key stakeholders involved with energy storage provides excellent insight to the importance of this area for renewable energy and the importance of storage as a long-term tool for steadily increasing the proportion of renewable energy in our overall energy portfolio.

Associate Director
Natural Resources Research Institute

Great experience to learn more not only about the latest developments in the storage sector, but also to identify some specific opportunities that are being developed and the trends that each of the different players are seeing for the near future

Project Finance Senior Specialist
North American Development Bank

The Energy Storage Summit Americas was a great opportunity to get a realistic view of the progress within the energy storage market and expand my network by meeting well informed and active participants throughout the industry.
