The dreaded peak and its impact on our electric grid is one of the biggest inefficiencies in our eletrical system.  Massive amounts of infrastructure and generating capacity are already installed to handle these spikes in demand that occur both daily and seasonally.  Energy storage systems are being deployed to help address the peak and the accelerated ramping and excessive costs associated with delivering energy when it is needed most.

In this breakout panel you will hear from leading companies like AES Energy Storage, Greensmith, Ice Energy, and 1Energy Systems as we look at the ways that energy storage can create a more dynamic and responsive grid that can better adapt to the ever-changing imbalance between generation and demand.
