Energy Institute One Day Conference

This one-day conference will examine the role of energy storage in the UK’s transition to a more flexible energy system. Topics will include industry forecasts on the benefits of increasing deployment of energy storage and the possible opportunities to develop efficient, economical storage solutions. There will be an emphasis on creating a market for storage, reducing costs, creating greater clarity for storage policy, removing legislative barriers, creating investment opportunities, and ensuring the right mix of technologies.

The conference is a follow-up to the hugely popular event run by the EI on the same topic in 2013, which attracted a delegation of policy-makers, and senior representatives from the industry, academia and local government. Programme
