Energy storage is key to improved electrical resilience, reliability, and equitable accessibility, particularly as we strive to meet critical large-scale electrification and decarbonization goals. Realizing the safe, reliable, widespread, deployment of commercially-viable energy storage, though, will require multidisciplinary advances across storage and integration technologies. Importantly, technological advances must be paired with forward thinking, equitably-motivated policy and market strategies that recognize and prioritize complex energy storage value streams and social impact. Our 2024 event will feature a keynote session that will highlight emerging stationary storage demonstrations and deployments, followed by a lively program of invited and submitted talks focused on storage technologies, integration, and safety, coupled with discussions of policy and market factors that also impact storage deployment. Submit your abstract and plan to participate in one of the most significant energy storage events this year.
