The Future of Smarter Solar+Storage

Tuesday, September 12
12:00 PM - 12:30 PM
Location: Storage Central: Booth 1235

The electrical grid is undergoing major shifts, and renewable energy resources are playing a larger role within the complex system. This is opening up new implementation opportunities for smarter solar+storage and power conversion technologies, which are becoming lighter, smaller, more reliable and more efficient.

In this presentation, John will address current efforts being made within various customer-facing value streams to make power conversion profitable and discuss additional opportunities. John will use a visual slide deck to highlight five examples of these value streams, and will explore how similar strategies can be implemented on the utility side. The discussion will look at the future of solar+storage and how the industry will help decrease emissions, costs and inefficiencies with more sophisticated technology.
