Australia’s peak industry event for energy storage, the fifth annual Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition (AES 2018), is coming to Adelaide from 23-24 May 2018.
As Australia transitions to a low carbon future, energy storage has been brought to the forefront of industry conversation.
While the implementation of battery storage is increasing, the energy storage umbrella covers many applications and technologies, from pumped hydro to thermal.
These technologies are important, but the focus should be on overall sustainability – environmental and business – and finding the right solution for each situation.
With South Australia arguably the country’s leaders in clean-energy and sustainability, it’s a fitting location for AES 2018, which will see presentations from industry experts, and exhibits from leading companies that are implementing energy storage solutions at the residential, commercial and grid levels.
With a theme of ‘Storing Energy for a Sustainable Future’, the event will explore the huge potential of emerging energy storage, focus on the technologies that will support this transition, and give delegates the chance to lean more about South Australia’s leadership in this fast growing sector.
Renewable energy leaders
The exhibition will be host to industry leading companies, including Tesla, Redflow, Toshiba, Kokam, ANT Solutions and many more, giving attendees an opportunity to hear about new products and technologies in the energy storage space.
The conference will also feature a keynote presentation from Chairman of GFG Alliance and majority shareholder of SIMEC Zen Energy, Sanjeev Gupta, who has become a major player in South Australia’s energy market. Recently the SA Government contracted SIMEC Zen Energy to help move the state towards a 100 per cent renewable energy target.
Get up close and personal on a site tour
AES 2018 will showcase energy storage integration in energy networks across Australia through a series of comprehensive workshops, an “Ask the Expert” industry session, a comprehensive social program, as well as a new look exhibition floor.
This year will also feature site tours from selected commercial and utility energy storage companies around Adelaide, allowing conference delegates an in depth look at innovative technology and installation, and how to overcome barriers in their deployment.
Attendees can talk directly with site owners and technology providers, with the tours running on Tuesday 22 May and open only to conference delegates. Site tours will include Hornsdale Wind Farm, Adelaide HS and Tonsley, and Redflow.
Don’t miss the chance to meet and connect with key decision-makers and be at the heart of the energy storage revolution.
The Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition 2018 will run from 23-24 May at the Adelaide Convention Centre. To register, visit www.australianenergystorage.com.au.
