Global energy storage sector to meet in Sydney

Energy sector professionals from Australia and around the world will convene in Sydney this June for the Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition to discuss cutting-edge storage technologies and how they are facilitating the transition to new energy systems and a more reliable grid.

‘Energy Storage — The Great Enabler’ has been set as this year’s event theme, featuring industry leaders who will explore the latest in projects, technologies and processes for large-scale and commercial energy storage.

Thought leaders and industry members from around the world will present case studies and lead discussion on energy storage technologies, microgrids, grid-scale storage investment and current storage projects, as well as examine where the sector is headed.

Local and international perspectives will reveal globally shared storage challenges and inspire new approaches and solutions to energy storage barriers.

The event will include a free-to-attend exhibition featuring the latest technologies available on the market and will provide many networking opportunities where attendees can mingle with industry experts and chat with peers in formal and informal settings.
