Since 2010

We are Europe’s 1st conference dedicated solely to energy storage since 2010. We have a history of 10 successful Forums in Europe, Asia, and Australia. Past speakers include over 240 different Utilities from 54 Countries as well as Government and Regulator keynote speakers such as: Japan’s ex-Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, UK Govt. Climate Change Activist, Sir David King, Alternative Nobel Prize Winner, the late Dr. Hermann Scheer (Germany). Check out our photos section.

What's Different?

Our Forum format includes 3 unique features such as an Action Planning session, a Breakfast with the Utilities and a Breakfast with Investors, all within a 5 star Hotel environment. 90% of our programme content is addressed by speakers representing project developers, buyers and end users of storage technologies. In 2018 in Berlin we feature speakers from more than 30 Utilities, 10 Regulators and 5 EPCs representing over 20 different countries. We are truly a World Forum.

What we do

We specialise in Conferences and Training Courses only on stationary energy storage since 2010. For Example 2 Conferences running in parallel in 1 location covering 60+ brand new researched topics. One 2 day Forum focuses on Residential Applications and The Energy Of Things (14-15 May, 2018). Another separate 3 day Forum focuses on Large Scale applications (16-18 May, 2018). The Energy Storage Academy runs a Training Course (10-11 October 2017 – Berlin). We are committed to deliver quality driven content through researching and drafting each topic title in our programme before inviting speakers.

MASTERCLASS: ENERGY STORAGE REALITY CHECK

Evaluating Energy Storage At The Economic And Technical Level

October 10th-11th, 2017 – Berlin

Masterclass Leader

Nicholas Tumilowicz

Principal Manager, Grid Integration Of Distributed Energy Resources
ELECTRIC POWER RESEARCH INSTITUTE – EPRI

NICHOLAS TUMILOWICZ

Principal Manager, Grid Integration Of Distributed Energy Resources
ELECTRIC POWER RESEARCH INSTITUTE – EPRI

Join Nick Tumilowicz for this special training course taking place in Berlin on October 10th-11th, 2017. Nick was rated as #2 Speaker at the 10th Energy Storage World Forum and the 4th Residential Energy Storage Forum in May, 2017 in Berlin based on the evaluation forms of the industry professionals attending the event.

Mr. Tumilowicz is Principal Technical Leader for Energy Storage and Distributed Generation with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), deploying distributed energy technologies into practical, real-world contexts. By identifying and executing demonstration projects across the international community, he addresses the utility challenges of high-penetration renewables and advises on technical solutions to validate value streams and inform industry standards.

Prior to joining EPRI, Tumilowicz drove global research and development efforts as Director of Energy Storage with SunEdison and renewable energy hardware testing at the United States Department of Defense Naval Research Laboratory.
