Real Projects — Real Results!

In 2017 energy storage inextricably moved beyond a focus on pilot projects: utilities are planning to procure an ever-increasing amount of grid-connected storage, while developers are looking to deploy grid-connected and BTM storage. Storage is being proposed as the solution to firm renewables to meet ever expanding RPS goals, to replace peaker plants, as an adjunct to solar projects, as virtual power plants (VPPs), and as a means to defer utility investment in traditional T&D technologies. However, to fuel storage market expansion sponsors must convince utilities and financiers that significant cost reductions are possible, and that proposed revenue streams are viable.

Now in its eleventh year, Storage Week 2018 is the global business hub driving the development and finance of energy storage projects. This year we will feature detailed case studies of implemented projects, providing long sought after information on the realities of how EPC issues have been handled, the realities of stacking value streams and their impacts on revenue streams, the state of the art in project structuring and contracting, and more! Join the senior executives and active financiers at the forefront of deploying behind the meter and grid-connected energy storage systems as they explore the road to bankable projects!
