Distributed Energy Storage: Challenges and Opportunites

Nov 27, 2012 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

Old Mill Inn and Spa
21 Old Mill Rd
Toronto, ON

Join us on November 27, 2012 for an exploration of how energy storage technologies could become a valuable component of the ‘smart’ energy grid – particularly in a distributed modality.  Expert panelists, industry leaders and key decision makers will participate in discussions around market opportunities, implementation challenges, technology applications and proposed next steps.

Background to this conference: the perfect storm that creates a need for commercialized energy storage solutions in this province:

  • The need to implement smart energy grid strategies that maximize the utility of the existing electricity system and which guides prudent investments in new grid infrastructure.
  • A persistent surplus of base load generation capacity at night when demand is low
  • The growing contribution from renewable but intermittent sources of electricity
  •  A small but rapidly developing storage technology sub-sector in Ontario, and a new wave of entrepreneurs   who are driving this development.
