Energy Storage Summit

Energy Storage Summit 2018

Britain continues to be confronted with an “energy trilemma” – the need to ensure security of supply, keeping costs low for consumers and to decarbonise. Intelligently used, energy storage could be one of the very few technologies to meet all three aims. It could act as a cost-avoiding measure for the network and contribute to decarbonisation in a multitude of ways, including helping to balance the grid and enable more renewables to be deployed.

The largest UK downstream focused event addressing energy storage. Four streams filled with developers, financiers, utilities, networks and aggregators discussing standalone storage, along with co-located and C&I applications. Also new for 2018 will be two entire streams dedicated to both UK and international case studies.

Energy Storage Summit returns to London in February, and with interest building around the potential of the UK storage sector, the event expands across two days in 2018 to reflect the upward trajectory of this exciting market.

This year the content will focus on:
  • Policy and regulations: future of network charging and embedded benefits, length of contracts and alignment of tender process
  • System operator: what are the system operator’s needs and strategies; and what impact they will have on the revenue stream for storage?
  • Strategy: how are companies across the value chain approaching the market?
  • PPAs: who is providing them, at what price and how do they make your project more bankable?
  • Finance: debt, equity, asset finance and corporate capital: who are the players and what are they willing to lend/invest against?
  • Case Studies: hear from the most successful commercial projects, both in the UK and Europe
  • Revenue Streams: future of revenue streams, volume, application processes and synergies
  • Technology, innovation and integrated systems: pros and cons for different technologies; the link between EVs, charging infrastructure and energy storage
By participating in the Summit, attendees will meet the entire energy storage value chain:
  • DNO, Regulators, National Grid
  • PPA Providers: Utilities, ESCOS, Traders, aggregators
  • Finance community: Banks, boutique mezzanine providers, renewable asset owners, private equity
  • End users: Housing Associations, Local Authorities, Installers, Large energy users
  • Developers from all backgrounds entering the market and targeting a wide range of segments
  • Energy storage companies and their supply chain

What are attendees saying?

“It’s really good to meet people involved in these projects - and hear them speak - behind all the news and reports on energy storage and clean energy. It’s insightful, and heartening to know, that there is some enlightened and clever thinking going into progressing the UK (and global) energy system towards a non-polluting energy independence. The information presented and sense created from the Energy Storage Summit should help define and affirm market signals. This in turn helps the investor community make decisions which should develop the energy storage market."

Tom Darwen, Director, Haven Power

“This was a wonderful event, mainly because of the quality of speakers and participants. The information was really relevant and covered the full range of the storage market - from finance to projects to technology to customer and Utilities needs and experiences.”

Louis Shaffer, Distributed Energy Management Segment Manager EMEA, Eaton

"This was the first truly all-encompassing, detailed, energy storage event in the UK and evidenced by the interest we had at BELECTRIC for our grid scale energy storage systems from both investors, developers and commercial and industrial clients alike. Well done Corinna and team at Solar Media - we look forward to the next event!”

Paul Camp, Business Development and Finance, BELECTRIC

“Energy storage and demand side management is a key emerging market that will shape how we use energy as consumers and how we manage energy as suppliers. The Energy Storage Summit is THE event to hear from, and meet, the key stakeholders from the supply chain, generators and Government representatives.”

Simon Baker, Chief Business Development Officer, Fichtner Consulting Engineers
