One of the significant revenue handicaps for solar PV in retail complexes is the inability to reliably reduce demand charges. Storage is seen as a cost effective enhancement to PV on these types of situations, apart from electrical storage, thermal storage is just as viable for on-supply of solar PV or off-peak electricity.
The prospect of an explosion in electric car ownership indicates a need to provide charging facilities, both for staff and customers at retail complexes.
Due to the high charging rates and multiplicity, electric cars hold the prospect of dramatically impacting demand, and therefore demand charges on these situations. Incremental storage offers the opportunity to provide a sizeable buffer to demand levels, which can be supplied from multiple renewable or off-peak electricity sources.
Robert Campbell from Vulcan Energy is speaking on the issues and solutions for EV vehicle charging and grid implications at the Australian Energy Storage Conference & Exhibition to be held in June at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney.
Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition is Australia’s dedicated energy storage event and the exhibition focuses on energy storage solutions for utilities, energy businesses, buildings and the emerging electric vehicle markets.
The event combines an industry conference, a trade exhibition and workshops, and is the only networking event in Australia that is dedicated to reviewing energy storage trends, solving existing and future issues and gives delegates a chance to talk to experts in the fields of industry storage and its usage.
The industry conference is a broad examination of the industry to date, and gives delegates the option of two streams over one or two days in topics ranging from energy storage solutions for communities, mining and telecommunications companies to a panel debate on the last day that examines “Energy storage will be the catalyst to changing from centralized to decentralized power systems”.
The trade exhibition and workshop program gives suppliers to the industry a vehicle to test the market and to showcase their latest innovations and products, and gives delegates and visitors the opportunity to evaluate new concepts and emerging technologies in energy storage from around the world.
Industry professionals from utilities and networks or companies seeking to connect renewable energy systems would benefit from attending our conference session on optimizing and expanding energy networks using energy storage. To be held on the first day of the conference this session addresses how to expand networks without building more poles and wires using case studies from Ergon Energy and Horizon Power.
There is power in being connected to other people who are active in the same line of work and have the same interests and goals as you, whether professional, business or personal.
The Australian Energy Storage Conference & Exhibition gives attendees the opportunity to connect with others in an engaging and informative manner; whether they are from large utility companies deciding the future energy supply of millions or an asset manager budgeting for new energy systems.
No matter how experienced a delegate is , they will still benefit from attending this conference. The conference gives delegates the opportunity to be exposed to different points of view, new ideas and future trends.
The Australian Energy Storage Conference is to be held on the 3rd and 4th of June at Australian Technology Park in Sydney.
