Kick-starting the large-scale energy storage market in Germany to match energy demand needs

Grid Stability | Battery energy storage systems (BESS) | Bankability

Storing energy to be used later is key for the energy transition (Energiewende) and EU's ambitions for a 'green future'. Still, too little attention has been paid to large-scale energy storage. Focusing on Germany's pivotal role in the global energy transition, the Solarplaza Summit Energy Storage Germany 2023, on November 23 in Cologne, aims to explore the challenges and opportunities of integrating energy storage solutions into Germany’s evolving energy landscape.

The conference features energy associations, grid operators, and developers sharing insights on grid stability, energy security, and policy. Practical business case studies highlight lessons learned from storage projects, including business models, cost analysis, and operational considerations. In our interactive sessions, financiers and investors will discuss the bankability of storage projects and new revenue streams. Amidst advancements in storage technologies, especially lithium-ion batteries, experts will discuss integrating battery energy storage systems (BESS) into existing systems, addressing supply chain constraints, system health, and diversification of the technology mix. Participants can connect with industry professionals, share ideas, and form potential collaborations. Join us as industry experts share their perspectives on the future of energy storage projects and the role they play in shaping the RE landscape in the German market and beyond.
