  • What is Energy Storage & Connected Systems?

    Energy Storage & Connected Systems 2018, held in association with the Renewable Energy Association will bring together key industry figures to focus on the future of energy in the UK.

    According to a report from the REA, the UK has the potential to reach 12GW of Energy Storage in the next 3 years. 8GW of this can happen without any legislative changes or policy drivers, but simply through upgrading and co-locating onto existing renewable energy projects.

    ESCS will give case studies about how we reach the 8GW targets using additional revenue steams from capacity markets, Arbitrage, flexibility, IOT & EV charge points.

    ESCS is the only UK event which looks at all aspects of energy storage, not just li-ion and solar but all technologies and energy sectors, covering power, heat and transport. With government committed to phasing out diesel vehicles by 2040, large energy providers are taking more interest in establishing an EV charging infrastructure.

    This event will keep interested players up to date with what is happening in this industry - what has worked, what hasn’t and how businesses, investors, communities and the public sector can work together using energy storage to be part of our new connected low-carbon infrastructure.
