Since 2010

We are Europe’s 1st conference dedicated solely to energy storage since 2010. We have a history of 9 successful Forums in Europe, Asia, and Australia. Past speakers include over 200 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. This year in Berlin we feature speakers from 38 Utilities, 11 Regulators and 5 EPCs representing 22 countries. We are truly a World Forum.

MASTERCLASS: ENERGY STORAGE REALITY CHECK
Evaluating Energy Storage At The Economic And Technical Level

Masterclass Leader

Nicholas Tumilowicz

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

 

Nick Tumilowicz is rated as #2 Speaker at the 10th Energy Storage World Forum and the 4th Residential Energy Storage Forum in May, 2017 Berlin based on the evaluation forms of 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.
