The Australian Energy Storage Conference & Exhibition to Offer Real Value to International Visitors

By , 11 March, 2015


The Australian Energy Storage Conference & Exhibition is set to provide visitors from around the globe an exclusive opportunity to experience the very latest developments and innovations in energy storage.

 

The event has received the support of NSW Government, Deputy Premier, Troy Grant MP. In his letter, the Deputy Premier wrote, “Sydney looks forward to extending a warm welcome to delegates attending the 2015 Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition. Storage provides an opportunity for households to be more proactive in the energy market, whilst increasing competition and reducing red tape for business.”

 

City of Sydney, Lord Mayor Clover Moore has also welcomed the event to Sydney. In supporting the show, she wrote,

 

“I commend the conference organisers for developing programs and events that will explore recent trends and developments in energy storage and showcase energy storage solutions and renewable energy. The conference is timely, as large and small-scale energy storage is increasingly likely to be a significant part of the future of energy. This will be a major change to the way energy is generated, distributed and used, and may offer network support by reducing the peaks that have been pushing up the investment in networks. It aligns well with the City’s plans for decentralised energy.”

 

The event organisers have announced strong support from California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA), a membership-based advocacy group committed to advancing the role of energy storage in the electric power sector through policy, education, outreach, and research. Numerous other international and Australian industry associations/bodies have also confirmed their support. The exhibition and conference is working closely with the Australian Energy Storage Alliance, an information sharing & networking platform launched in October 2014.

 

Last year's inaugural event saw over 800 attendees from 23 different countries. The 2015 event is expected to attract more than 1,400 visitors, including regulators, utility executives, investors, project developers, and technologists for two days of discussions, workshops, deal-making and networking.

 

The event is owned and presented by award winning exhibition company Exhibitions & Trade Fairs, Luke Kasprzak, Event Director said,

 

“With between 61 and 86 per cent of all the electricity generated never being used, there is a great demand for energy saving solutions, including implementing usage of energy storage.”

 

“The industry is also changing and renewable energy and energy storage are no longer seen as individual solutions, but linked together as part of an end to end solution with storage options, smart lighting and building technologies together.”

 

The exhibition will focus on energy storage applications for utilities, commercial and industrial customers, residential products, thermal storage, and the emerging electric vehicle market. 

 

Leading companies sponsoring and exhibiting at the event include Century Yuasa, Enphase Energy, Redflow, IS Systems, Kokam, S & C Electric, Panasonic, Victron Energy, JB Battery and many others.

 

More than 40 expert speakers from Australia and around the world will present at the conference over two days and will provide in-depth industry insights and discussions as well as perspectives in the 16 sessions across the two streams. These sessions will offer attendees commercial case studies as well as insights into market structures, policies and relevant technologies.

 

This conference is for anyone working in the energy industry, from utility level, consulting for remote or mining communities, to renewable energy businesses, as well as for building developers and managers seeking to reduce their energy costs.

 

From Australia, there will be speakers including Hugh Bromley from Bloomberg New Energy Finance, David Finn from Tritium, Donald McPhail from Ergon Energy and Bob Norris from Lend lease. Several speakers from US companies will also add their experience to the conference, including Andrew Tanner, VP Business Development at Growing Energy Labs Inc (GELI).  His presentation will feature discussion of the projects GELI has underway globally featuring a variety of battery chemistries as well as projects that integrate with EVSE, HVAC, lighting, thermal storage and other generating assets such as solar, wind and backup generators.

 

In addition to the conference program, Australian Energy Storage will feature free to attend workshops, providing a great opportunity for both exhibition only visitors and conference delegates, to learn about the industry services in an interactive environment.

 

The exhibition and workshops are free to attend and conference tickets at early bird rates are now available at www.australianenergystorage.com.au.
