The Grid-Scale Storage Summit being held June 25 to 26 in Charlotte, N.C., will feature discussions from representatives of three independent system operators in the U.S., as well as the U.S. Department of Energy.
This exciting summit, being held for the first time during the same week as HydroVision International, is bringing together industry leaders in the renewable energy and energy storage markets to explore the synergies between pumped storage hydro and intermittent renewables, such as wind and solar. Participants can strategize the next steps for working together to benefit both of these markets.
Dr. Timothy Unruh, deputy assistant secretary for renewable power in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy at DOE will provide a keynote address. He is responsible for his office’s applied research, development and demonstration for renewable energy, including geothermal, solar, wind and water power.
