The picture of the Energy Storage Global Conference are available!




The Energy Storage Global Conference 2018, organised by EASE, offers a unique opportunity to industry, researchers and policymakers to exchange views on key issues for the storage sector. Representatives from around the world will come together for three days to discuss the latest developments in energy storage technologies, regulatory and policy development and the future storage market.

In 2016 more than 220 delegates attended the Energy Storage Global Conference, which welcomed 49 speakers. In 2018 more than 330 delegates are expected to attend, as well as 15 exhibitors and over 70 speakers.

The third Energy Storage Global Conference is organised by the European Association for Storage of Energy in collaboration with the Directorate General for Energy and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.

This is your chance to attend the leading EU conference on energy storage and to exchange views on key issues for the storage sector with industry, researchers, national and international policymakers.

On 24 October 2018 you also have the possibility to participate in the Power to Hydrogen workshop organised by the TSO 2020 project, one of the largest action funded as part of the EU Connecting Europe Facility. The workshop will take place form 10.00 to 12.00 in the same venue and it is free of charge. Registration is mandatory:

DAY 1 Technology - organised with the support of the JRC

On day 1, participants will learn about the latest developments in cutting-edge energy storage technologies, from next-generation battery storage to hybrid energy storage applications. Participants will also get a sneak peak of the newest EASE-Delta-ee European Market Monitoring on Energy Storage report.


On day 1participants will have the opportunity to visit the battery park and the control room of the Drogenbos Power Plant, where the batteries are operated.The Drogenbos project consists of five batteries, having different cell technologies and coming from different suppliers, piloted separately or as a whole for a total of 6 MW/6MWh (Alfen, GE, YOUNICOS, INEO, Toshiba). This initiative is one of the first storage installations in Belgium dedicated to the frequency regulation service with batteries. The fifth technology was chosen with a higher C-rate to enlarge the flexibility of the whole system. Discover more:

DAY 2 Energy Storage Policy and Regulation

On day 2, the ESGC will bring together EU policymakers, National Regulatory Authorities, and speakers from around the globe to debate the most pressing challenges to the development of energy storage, to learn from best practice examples, and to dream about a market design and regulatory framework.

DAY 3 Market Drivers

The final day of the ESGC centres on energy storage markets. Participants will hear from a variety of experts about innovative business cases, investments, emerging markets, trends, and storage applications that will shape the future storage market.
