Energy Storage is a key enabling technology for decarbonising future energy systems and serves as a catalyst to accelerate the realisation of Net Zero goal 2050. The event is to get industry experts and academies together to share the vision and experience, to learn the good practice examples and to discuss the pressing challenges to the development and deployment of energy storage. We will highlight and identify the business and market need for attracting investment to speed up energy storage applications.
The Supergen Energy Storage Network+ (https://supergenstorage.org) has close links with research institutes and industry sectors for ES technology innovation so the event will facilitate the direct conversation between industry and academic research community. With the Joint UK-India Clean Energy Centre (JUICE, https://www.juice-centre.org.uk), we hope to bring the wide audience and stakeholders from the UK and India.
