Long-Duration Energy Storage Forum

Enabling the integration and optimization of renewables

November 16-17, 2021- Sacramento, CA, United States

The stationary energy storage market is projected to grow from $9.1 billion (15.2 Gwh) in 2019 to $111.8 billion (222.7 Gwh) by 2035, at a CAGR of 18.3%.* Within this sector, utility-scale long-duration storage is of growing importance in enabling the utilization of renewables by utilities, energy providers, and large C&I end users. In addition to renewables integration, services include grid inertia, frequency regulation, and alleviating transmission constraints. After several years of VC investment and promising but limited demonstrations, long-duration storage is poised to play an important role in the coming energy transition worldwide.

The Long-Duration Energy Storage Forum on November 16-17, 2021 in Sacramento focuses on promising technologies for enabling this service on the grid, as well as business models and case studies of current deployments. Insights from industry experts will provide up-to-date perspectives on technology options, as well as a potential roadmap for moving toward widespread implementation.

In order for California to reach its goal of eliminating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its electricity sector by 2045, the state will need to deploy between 45GW and 55GW of long-duration energy storage, a recent study by the California Energy Storage Alliance has found. This Forum is a unique opportunity to network face-to-face with key technology innovators, regulatory professionals, and energy providers who are driving long-duration energy storage development and implementation in the state, and nationwide. Be sure to register today!
