100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply
When: 24 January, 2011   Where: Houston, Texas, USA

This conference provides an expert forum for utilities, LSEs, regulators and storage technology providers to determine what and how market, technology and policy/ regulatory issues need to be aligned to enable broader applications of energy storage in electricity markets.

Storage for electric energy (EES) has long been regarded as one of the few technologies that could truly revolutionize the grid.Its foremost appeal is the role it can play in improving the functionality of renewable energy resources and their integration with the grid. Its promise, though, reaches well beyond that, into:

  • Ancillary services augmentation
  • Residential, commercial, and community use in concert with demand-side management
  • Deferral of transmission and distribution infrastructure upgrades
  • Smart grid integration
