BAP Session – Day 3 – Taking The Forum To The Next Step

After all the power point presentations from all 3 forum days have been completed, we will be running a tailored discussion in parallel groups centred on active engagement, collaboration and innovative methods to tackling specific issues which came up during the conference. Each group discussion will then be followed by a step by step approach on how to implement solutions.

The materialisation of a commonly envisioned sustainable future is dependent upon the conception and subsequent execution of a viable action plan. Drawing upon the lessons absorbed from the presentations shared over the course of the three day Forum, the conclusive “Building the Action Plan” segment of the conference encourages delegates to engage, collaborate and devise methods to tackling challenges that plague the issue of widespread application of energy storage technology and grid integration.

With ‘Innovate’ signifying an imperative call for action rather than an empty declarative, “Building the Action Plan” invites delegates to consider a step by step approach on how to implement solutions needed to achieve a palpable renewable future. Dr. Rahul Walawalkar, Board of Directors & Chairperson, Communications Working Group at Electricity Storage Association, will steer the direction of the discussion.

Several foundational guidelines relevant to creating a sustainable future will be made apparent throughout the conference, these will no doubt feed into this session, including: firstly, identifying the storage technology needed, secondly, evaluating the storage technology’s cost and strategising the integration of the storage technology into the grid system, and thirdly formulating a comprehensive regulatory framework and business case to enable the smooth application of energy storage technology.

Nonetheless, true success in the genesis of a renewable future rests squarely upon the creativity of the human mind, e.g. you, the participants on that day, and that is precisely what “Building the Action Plan” intends to tap on. “Building The Action Plan” (TM) is a unique feature of Dufresne’s Energy Storage Forum and we look forward to seeing you there at 16 pm on Day 3! 

If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.


Future energy predictions: Growth of flexibility and grid forming

  It is well known that COVID-19 has caused low energy demand and the growth of renewable energy across Europe. Now, Andrew Tang, Vice President for Energy Storage at Wärtsilä, predicts this will result in swift action to build better grid resiliency. The share of renewable power across Europe has skyrocketed over the last six…

Battery Storage for Commercial & Industry

Powerful battery storage offers many advantages in terms of saving electricity costs and a reliable power supply. With this technology, companies retain control of their energy supply and costs. The battery storage system is charged when energy is cheaply available and it supplies the stored electricity when prices are at their highest. With applications such…

The UK National Energy Grid – A Story of Islands, Trading, and Energy Storage

As first seen in Energy Global, grid software acts as a modern-day map, helping to chart and navigate today’s energy grids; software engineers are tasked with carefully delineating how each region’s energy markets operate. However, looking more closely at energy markets makes clear how unique each market is – each defined by different topography, resources,…
