The significance of energy storage as an integral part of the electrical grid is receiving increasing attention by a wide range of stakeholders including large consumers, renewable developers, utilities, grid system operators and regulators. 

On the 4th World Energy Storage Day, India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), India’s leading alliance on energy storage & e-mobility is organizing a one-of-its-kind Global Conference & Expo to develop a global ecosystem.

The event will be held virtually on September 22, 2020 across four regions encompassing sessions on Policy and Government Initiatives, Stationary Energy Storage Panel Discussion, E-Mobility Panel and Latest innovations and developments in the energy sector. 2019 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, Dr Stanley Whittingham is the Keynote speaker who is currently working as a professor of Chemistry in Binghamton University, State University of New York. 

The event will bring together 75+ global thought leaders and policy makers to share insights on latest developments and trends in the policy, technology, and business landscape in each of the four global regions. To capitalize on this opportunity, participants from over 60 countries already registered.

The energy storage sector has come a long way in the past decade and is seen as an enabler for transformation towards a greener grid and cleaner transportation. The development of this sector is the result of the hard work and passion of all stakeholders around the globe. To celebrate the growing importance of energy storage, the Global Energy Storage Alliance started celebrating 22 September as World Energy Storage Day (WESD) in 2017. 

Over the past three years, the IESA and its partners celebrated WESD with various national-level events to spread the word within each region. This year, with COVID limiting international travel, all the alliances decided to opt for a virtual platform to jointly celebrate the WESD with this unique conference. For the first time, a marathon online event dedicated to the energy storage and EV industry has been organized on this scale with the sole aim of encouraging international collaborations and accelerating the adoption of these technologies around the globe. The WESD Global Conference is supported by over 30 partners.

Speaking about the event, Dr. Rahul Walawalkar, President, India Energy Storage Alliance says “we are thrilled to organize this virtual conference and expo on the occasion of 4th World Energy Storage Day which is set to bring the world’s energy storage community together. The goal of this conference is to highlight the importance of energy storage in power & transportation sector, its potential, and impact on the sustainability of global energy resources.”

He further said, “for Indian market, we are all set to re-inculcate our mission of ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat’ in the energy storage sector. The sector has been dependent on global markets for manufacturing. However, in the recent past, we have seen numerous announcements and robust intent to manufacture energy storage components within the country. Therefore, this year, with the aim to bring disruption in the energy storage space, we are excited to bring together global leaders and stakeholders to uncover the opportunities in the ecosystem in order to make India a self-reliant economy for energy storage. I urge the industry stakeholders to come forward and celebrate the day.”
