First Call Abstracts Due: December 08, 2017
There is a significant potential for energy storage on the grid: storing energy during times of low demand to supply customers during peak load times without the need for additional generation capacity. Energy storage capacity makes renewable energy, whose power output cannot be controlled by grid operators, smooth and dispatchable. Storage technologies can stabilize the grid, enable micro-grids, and provide reliable backup for critical facilities such as hospitals or data centers.
Battery development for off-grid applications – for portable electronics and electric vehicles – also remains an area of strong industry pull. The corporate and investment world recognizes the considerable potential for innovations that increase energy density and bring down costs, whilst maintaining safety.
Energy storage continues to be an area of strong investment community interest.
You are invited to submit abstracts describing new materials and device development, and also describing the path to commercialization of novel energy storage systems.
