There are few areas of the energy and utilities industries that storage doesn’t promise to upend. What impact will energy storage have on your business? How are utilities responding to the next great energy transformation? Find out at our Future of Energy Storage event.
100+ energy storage leaders from the likes of National Grid, Ofgem and SP Energy Networks, will come together to explore the investment climate, policy and regulatory developments, network connections, the impact of EVs and much more.
Featuring several hours of networking opportunities with networks, generators, suppliers, regulators and more, this energy storage conference provides exclusive access to the people, ideas and technology driving the sector forward.
For sponsorship opportunities, email us here.
Here are just some of the topics to be discussed:
- HOW are regulatory and policy changes shaping the evolution of the storage market?
- WHAT do customers want from storage and can it be made a desirable proposition?
- HOW will proliferation of storage impact the UK generation market?
- WHAT level of debt and equity investment is likely to be make in coming years?
- HOW have existing storage projects performed in the real world?

Laying the ground for transformation: encouraging and enabling storage innovation
- Where is the potential greatest for storage to transform energy utilities?
- Playing catch-up? How can policy be adjusted to make the most of energy storage?
- What impact would allowing network ownership have on the industry’s development?
- To what extent is a lack of dedicated safety standards holding back development?
- How can the benefits of government innovation spending in storage be maximised?
- Where are export opportunities greatest for the UK energy storage industry?
- What steps should networks be taking to simplify connections and planning?
- Does the rise of storage and self-generation presage a death spiral for the grid?
- What level of penetration of storage is the UK grid likely to see over the next 10 years?
- How dependent is the growth of storage on increasing pressure on system flexibility?
- How sensitive is the energy storage market to changes in government policy?
- How critical is the ability to stack revenue streams to the business case for energy storage?
- What steps can networks take to facilitate value stacking?
- What are the principal regulatory barriers to value stacking?
Surveying the investment climate
This fireside chat will address the investment picture for energy storage in the UK, with perspectives from both debt and equity. The chair will moderate a discussion, which will be followed by questions. Topics to be addressed include:
- How much growth does storage need to see before it attracts large-scale debt financers?
- How does the risk profile for storage compare with renewables?
- What impact is the growth of storage having on the financeability of traditional energy utilities?
- Which technologies are seeing the most interest from investors?
Further speaker to be confirmed
- Why are water companies interested in energy storage?
- What are the risks, issues and opportunities?
Unlocking the value of flexibility
Recently acquired by Ovo Group, VCharge have pioneered the development of markets for transactive load. In this presentation, Toby Ferenczi will explore how bringing together virtual power plant technology and innovative energy supply models can help to unlock value from energy storage and flexible loads.
Integrating storage into distribution networks
Roosecote: pursuing true merchant-model storage
At 49MW, Roosecote will be one of the world’s largest battery storage installations. In the absence of an EFR or other balancing services contract the facility will be reliant on the capacity and wholesale markets for revenue. This case study will explore the business case for merchant-model storage and the challenges surrounding the construction of large grid-scale storage.
Electric vehicles: the ultimate energy disrupters?
This fireside chat will see experts from energy and transport discuss the transformative potential of electric vehicles as energy storage resources. The chair will moderate a discussion, which will be followed by questions. Topics to be addressed include:
- Are electricity networks prepared for a surge in demand from EVs?
- How effective would a widespread vehicle-to-grid network be as a storage resource?
- Can electric vehicles replace traditional sources of flexibility?
- What potential is there for EV batteries to have a second life as static storage?
EnerCap have undergone a project to enhance the performance of their 80MW Chirnogeni wind farm. Shane Woodroffe will explain the analysis undertaken of two different storage technologies to mitigate imbalance and regulatory costs whilst maintaining maximum green certificate value.
