Aurora Battery Storage and Flexibility Conference 2019

The need for energy storage and flexibility has become increasingly apparent as decarbonisation ambitions are raised and renewables penetration grows. However, future revenue streams and associated uncertainties are difficult to quantify and financing projects can be challenging.

Aurora’s annual Battery Storage and Flexibility Conference has grown to be one of the largest events of its kind in Europe, attracting 550 participants from more than 300 companies in 2018. The event combines original analysis from Aurora with perspective from leading figures from industry, finance and policy in a focused half day in central London.

Central themes for this year’s conference are:

  • What is the requirement for storage and flexibility as we head towards a net zero energy system?
  • Which technologies will meet this requirement?
  • What are the key risks for battery storage and flexibility projects?
  • How can investors get comfortable with these risks?

If you’re interested in attending, please get in touch.
