Energy storage North America 2018 conference program to showcase the future of power and transportation

Energy Storage North America (ESNA), the most influential gathering of policy, technology and market leaders in energy storage, has released its full Conference and Expo program, which will explore and illuminate the role of energy storage at the intersection of the power and transportation industries.

“North America’s energy storage market is currently the hottest energy storage market in the world, with unprecedented opportunity,” said Janice Lin, Energy Storage North America Conference Chair. “This year, ESNA will highlight the growth and transformation of the industry as storage is integrated into the global energy ecosystem in various applications, from grid-connected, front-of-the-meter applications; to behind-the-meter use cases; to vehicle electrification.”
New for 2018, ESNA will share a venue with the CALSTART Annual Symposium, providing a meeting place for developers, utility executives, energy users, fleet managers, auto manufacturers and suppliers, policy makers and other stakeholders to discuss the advancement of energy storage. CALSTART, the nation’s leading advanced clean transportation technologies consortium, will showcase the newest low- and zero-emission advanced technology vehicles, as well as chair a new Mobility and Storage conference track to educate attendees on the achievements in and outlook for sustainable fleet electrification.
