Energy Storage in Canada: Accelerating the Future

In partnership with Energy Storage Ontario (ESO) and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), we are excited to be co-hosting the Energy Storage in Canada: Accelerating the Future conference, Sept. 20-21, 2016 in Toronto, Ontario. The first-ever conference dedicated to advancing energy storage across Canada, this is a unique opportunity to engage in an in-depth look at the drivers for storage and be a part of shaping the future of the industry across the country.

This unique one-day summit brings together stakeholders from across Canada and North America to meet for an informative and collaborative event that brings an in-depth focus on the opportunities and markets available in Ontario and across Canada. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with storage industry leaders, utilities, grid operations staff, customers and government officials, to gain a full understanding of this market opportunity and what lies ahead for storage in Canada.

More details will be coming available soon, but mark your calendar today for this unique event – September 20-21, 2016 in Toronto!
