(REPOST: Energy Storage News)

Regulators, policymakers, experts, developers, utilities, aggregators and of course, energy storage industry participants will fill out the Victoria Park Plaza in London next week to discuss everything impacting the deployment of energy storage.

The third annual Energy Storage Summit takes place at the end of February (27-28 February 2018) in London, brought to you by our publisher Solar Media.

Names announced to attend include Nancy Bowker at the US’ main energy regulator, FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission), which has just set out rules for enabling the participation of energy storage in wholesale markets.

You will also be able to hear from and meet folk from the likes of distribution network operator (DNO) Western Power Distribution and UK Power Reserve, financiers like Capitas, Investec, SUSI Partners and Triodos Bank, utilities like EDF and WGL, aggregators such as Limejump and UK and international energy storage tech providers and system integrators and developers including Viking Cold Solutions, ABB, Fluence, Nidec, REStore, NEC ES, Alfen and many more.

The programme promises a lively mix. National Grid is overhauling how it procures various grid services, the industry continues to lobby for regulatory definitions of energy storage and these issues, along with the technical, financial and legal aspects of the industry, from co-location with renewables to real-world case studies and project data, will engage visitors from the Chair’s Opening Remarks at 9am on Tuesday until the conference adjourns the following afternoon.
