Infocast's 5th Annual Storage Week Returns

As Grid Storage Nears an Inflection Point, This Meeting Convenes Leading Users and Market Makers

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 30, 2012) - Infocast brings its highly acclaimed Storage Week Summit to San Jose, CA this coming June 25 - 27, 2012 at the DoubleTree by Hilton San Jose. Top industry thought leaders such as Luminant, CPUC, SunEdison, BrightSource Energy, Inc., SDG&E, SunPower, Starwood Energy Group Global, LLC, Statnett, PJM, NYISO, MISO, Hawaiian Electric Co., PG&E, APS, CPS Energy, PNM Resources, DNV-Kema, and others will convene once again to assess how to leverage the myriad benefits of energy storage in a variety of settings and business models.

"The conference provides a comprehensive view of storage themes from across the spectrum of industry participants -- developers, utilities, RTO/ISOs, regulators, vendors, and financiers," said Jack Farley, President of Apex Compressed Air Energy Storage, LLC. Energy storage continues to be the 'Swiss Army knife' of the grid, offering a variety of innovative solutions to problems both old and new.

Contradictory trends make this is a potential turning-point year for grid storage. Regulatory reforms (California, Texas, bills in Congress) and major commercial projects are moving forward, but low gas prices, collapse of renewable subsidies, and drying up of venture funding pose a challenge. Will consolidation ensue? How will storage navigate these turbulent waters to capitalize on the vast global potential that all analysts agree awaits in the near future? The 5th Annual Storage Week once again convenes the leading implementers and solution providers to share how they are using storage to solve real-world problems, to discuss critical headaches and bottlenecks, and to share strategic insights into how and where this uniquely multi-functional technology will be applied next.
