Utility-Scale Energy Storage Forum

April 16-17, 2024 - Oakland, CA, United States

As variable renewable energy continues to grow, the demand for grid-scale storage will expand and the specifications for energy storage will change -- requiring larger installations that provide longer durations of storage. Evaluating and deploying correct technologies to meet the burgeoning need for storage at utility scale will be a key priority for energy providers going forward.
