Plenary Session: Technology Acceleration Transforming Markets

Room: Four Seasons Ballroom 3
Date: Thursday, April 20, 2017
Time: 9:00AM - 10:15AM MDT

The power system is in the midst of an immense transformation - with a centralized hub-and-spoke grid being disrupted by new strategies and emerging technologies.

This multi-faceted evolution is taking many forms, and progressing in different ways across the globe. The U.S. is the epicenter of the rapid acceleration of the energy storage industry, but these experiences and lessons learned are quickly being adopted into global markets.

As energy storage deployments continue to climb globally, better understanding how to integrate these highly adaptable assets is paramount. Our opening plenary session will set the tone for the day, exploring topics related to global energy storage markets, technology adoption and system design for successful business models, and the emerging distributed energy resources revolution.
