The topic of energy storage is fundamental to discussions of energy transition. Energy storage has implications for the reliability and efficiency of energy systems despite fluctuations in energy demand and diverse energy supply over time and space, the modernization of aging energy grids, and options for customer-sited energy systems. The advancement of energy storage technology is an essential component for the development of 21st century energy systems which are reliable and environmentally sustainable, but only some applications are cost-effective at present. Furthering deployment of storage in Minnesota will require an integrated approach, based on collaboration among multiple sectors, as well as a deep understanding of the market and regulatory environments that will facilitate the advancement of energy storage.
The goal of the Summit is to gather talented participants from a variety of sectors in order to reach a shared understanding of the trends in energy storage globally and nationally as well as a baseline of storage-related activity and opportunities in Minnesota. The Energy Storage Summit will provide a foundation of knowledge to participants on the interfaces between energy storage science, technology and markets in order to engage in a high-level discussion focusing upon the policy, regulatory, and market drivers affecting energy storage in Minnesota, in addition to specific topics such as resiliency, renewables, reliability, greenhouse gas emissions, and costs of energy storage. Summit participants will contribute to an interdisciplinary conversation and help shape strategic planning for advancing energy storage in Minnesota.
The entire Summit will be videotaped and available on the Energy Transition Lab website after the event.
