Ellen Anderson Speaking at Energy Transition Lab’s Energy Storage Summit

Energy Transition Lab Executive Director Ellen Anderson will be speaking at Energy Storage North America (ENSA) about how Minnesota has worked to optimize existing transmission distribution and generation assets with storage.

Ellen Anderson will join Brian Burandt of Connexus Energy, Ed Burgess of Strategen Consulting, and Jessica Harrison of MISO for a discussion detailing Minnesota stakeholders’ efforts to evaluate the value of storage across grid generation, transmission, and distribution domains and jumpstart the local energy storage market. The presentation will review key model findings on the cost-benefits of storage to Minnesota’s grid, update attendees on energy storage RFPs, and detail next steps to engage in this emerging market.

Based in San Diego, California ESNA features three days of interactive programming on energy storage related policies, markets, trends and technologies. ESNA’s agenda will include energy storage site tours, networking opportunities with over 1,900 stakeholders, workshops, and sessions featuring leading policymakers, utilities, and commercial/industrial customers interested in building the energy grid of the future. ENSA participants will learn first-hand about the key use cases, successful implementations, and potential risks in a fast-growing industry in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, and Mexico.
