The Sydney energy storage community met last week at the second energy storage updates and networking event organised by the Australian Energy Storage Alliance (AES Alliance).
The event was sponsored and hosted by AECOM global leaders in integrated planning and engineering solutions for a sustainable energy future.
Over seventy renewable energy executives and industry decision-makers from the commercial sector, organisations in the energy sector, as well as representatives of Government at several levels were present.
Guest speakers included Kobad Bhavnagri, Head of Australia, Bloomberg New Energy Finance and Dr Helen Lewis from the Australian Battery Recycling Initiative (ABRI).
Mary Hendriks, Industry Executive, Australian Energy Storage Alliance commented, “Innovative and commercially viable energy storage solutions are key elements in changing the way power is delivered to consumers, to business and to industry.”
Ms Hendriks added “Energy Storage is not just about better batteries; it covers the wider spectrum of technologies and innovative solutions for distributed power, on and off grid solutions, using stored energy in the built environment and rethinking our transport infrastructure.”
Following on from the successful Sydney event, AES Alliance are organising their next energy storage updates and networking event in Melbourne on March 26. The event will be hosted and sponsored by Siemens and the attendees will have a chance to listen to presentations from AusNet Services and CSIRO.
The AES Alliance is supported by various industry groups along with the Australian Energy Storage Conference andExhibition, the dedicated energy storage event in Australia.
