For the first time ever, ESNA is partnering with CALSTART, North America’s largest advanced clean transportation consortium. Our 2018 theme will resonate with energy storage stakeholders as we face massive efforts to electrify fleets:

Energy Storage- Where the Future of Power and Transportation Meet

The 2018 program highlights successful energy storage projects for mobile as well as stationary applications. We will dive into the challenge of vehicle charging at scale, examine the implications of FERC Order 841, consider replacement of peakers with non-wire assets, debate best practices for market design, meet with thought leaders from North America and around the globe to advance our understanding of the energy storage ecosystem, and continue to build a community dedicated and inspired to a build a more resilient, efficient, modern, connected, and affordable power grid.
