Summary Of Post-Forum Workshop

Berlin, Germany— as the week of the 6th Energy Storage World Forum came to a close, there was hardly any better lesson than learning how to apply an energy storage project in real life and making it profitable.

In “How To Make Your Energy Storage Project Financeable”, Morning Workshop leader Olivier Vallee shared his experience in Silicon Valley with workshop participants. Olivier answered questions involving private sector financial markets, staged investments, understanding investors, technology financing, public sector financial markets, and drivers of the energy storage sector. The morning workshop also featured guest speaker Fred Hustig.

In the afternoon, Forum Chairman Richard Baxter along with Matthew Lazarewicz of Energy Storage Solutions led the Building the Action Plan session. In this session, conference delegates drew on the information acquired over the past 3 Forum days, generated real-life application questions and designed a plan of action through interactive discussions and detailed planning towards realizing energy storage for a cleaner, more reliable future.

The Post-Forum Workshop and Building the Action Plan session consisted of small in-depth, focused discussions involving both workshop leaders and participants. Particular attention was given to asking critical questions and creating innovative solutions to the problems that the energy storage industry faces.
