Power networks provide the backbone for our energy infrastructure. With increasing reliance on electricity to support decarbonisation of the energy sector, the importance of energy storage for power networks continues to increase.
There is now a strong research base in all types of energy storage in the UK, and an increasing number of projects which include energy storage are being developed by network operators, renewable developers as well as other generators and users of power. This seminar brings together users and developers of energy storage, along with researchers and policy makers in order to share ideas and understand how energy storage can and will be used in the future.
This is the third annual seminar organised and run by the Electricity Storage Network and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. It will address the latest developments in national and European policy towards electricity storage, and provide an update on the current status of energy storage technologies and projects.
Poster presentations and exhibition:
Commercial, industrial, academic, consultancy, suppliers and developers are invited to participate in the exhibition and poster presentation area at the conference and at the reception on the evening preceding the conference.
Poster presentations on topics related to the theme of energy storage on power grids are invited, and an abstract should be provided to the organisers by end January 2013. Poster papers should be of an academic or research nature, ie non-commercial or advertising.
There will also be an exhibition area, suitable for suppliers, developers and users of storage. Exhibits may be commercial in nature.
