Grid-scale investment, the future of commercial ESS, utility applications for energy storage technologies, the role of microgrids and where the sector is headed are all topics on everyone’s minds, and gaining insight into these issues can offer a huge competitive advantage.

On June 13-14, the 2019 Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition will draw together some of the most influential forces in the energy storage space to discuss industry trends, share strategies and get a hands-on look at the sector’s newest technology and innovations.

Energy system providers, utilities, all levels of government, commercial companies and other top energy storage players will be there to take advantage of the critical knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities.

This year’s theme, Energy Storage – The Great Enabler, will provide a guiding force behind the event’s range of activities, which include:

  • Thought-leading presentations
  • Expert panel discussions
  • Free professional development workshops
  • Targeted topic streams
  • And much more

The theme recognises the ability of energy storage to enable high penetration of renewable energy and perform a wide range of grid and microgrid support services, allowing for more efficient and resilient energy systems.

Attendees are invited to explore real, financially-viable case studies and solutions for utility, commercial, off-grid, micro-grid and residential applications.

Network and explore

Beyond the presentations and group discussions, attendees will have various opportunities to catch up with colleagues in the field and form new relationships during AES 2019’s social events.

In addition to lunch and tea breaks scheduled throughout each day, participants can unwind at the end of day one with a complimentary networking drinks function on the exhibition floor. Delegates can then continue the evening with a dinner cruise around Sydney Harbour, which will feature five-star food and entertainment along with spectacular views of Sydney’s iconic Vivid Festival.

Attendees will also have the option of registering for one of three site tours that will take place the day before the conference on Wednesday 12 June. The Ecoult Battery Laboratory, Food Bank’s TES Installation and the Alexandra Canal Depot will each offer a behind-the-scenes look at some of Australia’s most innovative and impactful energy storage technologies, granting participants practical knowledge to take back to their own organisations.

The Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition is running from 13-14 June 2019 at the International Convention Centre in Sydney. For last-minute registrations, visit
