Storage Week 2017

February 22-24, 2017 • Oakland, CA

Energy storage is poised for exponential growth! The demands of the modern electric system, featuring massive infusions of renewable energy and DERs, are driving states, markets and utilities to spur investment in storage systems and technologies. California-style state procurement mandates are emerging in other states, C&I customers are installing storage as part of their energy management and sustainability initiatives, RTOs and ISOs are working on storage products and services, and utilities are adding storage assets to their grid management toolkit. Hundreds of megawatts of storage projects are in the pipeline, rivaling the early growth rate of solar.

However, as storage moves to full-scale deployment, developers must now seek outside capital to fuel their growth. And despite radical reductions in battery costs, the economics, business models and risks of the new storage asset class are more difficult for lenders and investors to deal with than solar.

Now in its tenth year, Storage Week 2017 is the global business hub driving the development and finance of energy storage projects. Join the senior executives and active financiers at the forefront of deploying behind the meter and standalone energy storage systems as they explore the road to bankable projects!

Energy Group Partner Larry Eisenstat will speak about "Perspectives on Regulatory Reform to Support Energy Storage."

Senior Policy Advisor Patricia Alexander will moderate the panel "Storage Role in Grid Modernization & Investment Deferral."
