Upcoming Events


Energy Storage North America     San Diego, California   August 8-10, 2017

Energy Storage North America (ENSA) is based in San Diego, California and features three days of interactive programming on energy storage related policies, markets, trends and technologies. Energy Transition Lab Executive Director Ellen Anderson will be speaking about Minnesota as a case study on how the state 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 on 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. ESNA’s agenda will also 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.
