Battery & Energy Storage Conference 2017

Decarbonisation, decentralisation and vehicle electrification are the pillars of a low carbon future. But in a society powered by storage, how do you differentiate between a multitude of storage technologies whilst building the business case for investment? How do you traverse new and existing regulations, differentiate your offering in an increasingly homogeneous market, and forge profitable partnerships?

The Battery and Energy Storage event will be addressing these challenges head-on. Featuring a combination of industry best practice, interactive discussions, tailored content and networking opportunities, this two-day event will unite stakeholders from the automotive and energy industries in promoting both a more sustainable future, with clear road maps to successful outcomes. Hear from industry leaders on cutting edge technology, establishing profitable new business models, and determining in the right solution for your project.
