Conference to discuss renewable energy storage solutions

ADELAIDE, May 22, 2018

International industry leaders in renewable energy will discuss the industry’s transition to storage solutions at  at a conference to be held in Australia, said a report.

The 2018 Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition will be held on May 23 and May 24 at the Adelaide Convention Centre, in Adelaide.

The event will also enable energy industry experts to see first-hand and learn from South Australia’s expertise in clean energy generation and storage, added The Lead South Australia report.

Sam Staples, AES sales manager and conference programme manager, said South Australia’s ongoing work in the renewable energy sector makes it the ideal location to host the event.

He said that Adelaide and South Australia have positioned themselves as national leaders in the push to modernise energy systems through the uptake of clean and efficient technologies.

Staples added that the state is well on its way to becoming 100 per cent renewable and energy storage is the key to achieving this benchmark.

The conference comes as Adelaide continues to build on its reputation as a global leader in the uptake of renewable energy and storage technology, which has seen the establishment of a number of key infrastructure projects including the world’s largest lithium ion battery built by Elon Musk’s Tesla in conjunction with French renewable energy company Neoen late last year.

South Australian silicon energy storage innovator 1414 Degrees launched an IPO this month that it expects could raise as much as $50 million for its storage technology that delivers an output of heat as well as electric power.

German battery and solar energy company Sonnen announced in February that it would move its Australian headquarters to Adelaide where it will also establish a battery manufacturing hub.

Renewable sources in South Australia account for almost 50 per cent of the electricity generated in the state, added the report.
