USA - Energy Storage North America (ESNA; www.esnaexpo.com), the largest gathering of policy, technology and market leaders in energy storage, announces that it will host the world's first international delegation (see VIP delegate list below) dedicated to the collaborative pursuit and implementation of energy storage on a global scale.
The new "Global Grid Transformation" Track will feature more than 100 international market makers, utility executives and policy makers from 26 countries to share best practices, develop plans to accelerate progress and establish a peer-group network of energy storage champions worldwide.
"Grid transformation will only happen through the vision and leadership of key local champions. We've been working for years to realize this level of international collaboration," said Janice Lin, ESNA Co-Founder and Conference Chair.
"Our inaugural Global Grid Transformation Program is a huge first step toward realizing the benefits of energy storage on a global scale. ESNA, this year, has become a platform to accelerate these leaders' efforts by building a network of co-collaborators working together for transformational change."
On August 10, the Global Grid Transformation Track will feature a keynote session, "Building Bridges: California-Mexico Collaboration on Transforming Energy Markets," followed by focused grid transformation programming including three concurrent roundtable discussions with industry leaders and regulators, grid operators and government leaders from Australia, China and Mexico, along with invited industry and public-sector participants from throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Representatives from the U.S., Australia, Canada, Germany, India and China will also provide market updates at the World of Energy Storage Global Showcase on the Expo floor stage on August 9.
