What Does the Future Hold for Energy Storage?

Storage technologies are at the forefront of the energy transition. Their ability to alleviate traditional grid balancing challenges and to foster a shift towards a more flexible and reliable decentralised energy system are some of the main reasons storage is seen as such a critical component of future power systems.

In comparison with the multifaceted complexities of energy markets, the commercialisation of energy storage has seen a smooth and bright ride over the past few years. Energy storage has risen from obscurity to garner unanimous support. Commercialisation of energy storage is now expected to not only stir up the renewable energy push in the region, but also foster changes in energy sectors like the oil and gas industries.

In this session, international law firm CMS, together with Energy Storage experts in the region, will seek to explore some of these themes, and cover:
• A technical breakdown of energy storage
• Policy and regulations
• Strategies and business models for developers
• Entch: tech solutions at the forefront of the energy digitalisation
• Finance: creating bankable revenue stacks
