Before the 2018 Energy Storage STUDIO Conference wraps up, join us for closing keynote addresses by a series of dynamic speakers.  

First, hear from two speakers embedded in the electric utility and electric cooperative sector, both of whom will address the role of electric companies' information technology systems and networks in the deployment of innovative energy resources like storage.  Conference attendees will learn about data-related challenges and opportunities that arise from the perspective of an electric company when integrating, deploying, and implementing emerging technologies like energy storage.

Joy Ditto, President & CEO of the Utilities Technology Council, and Joe Brannan, Executive Vice President & CEO of the North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation, will offer separate keynote addresses on this topic, before being joined on-stage by Kelly Speakes-Backman, CEO of ESA, for a fireside chat.

Lastly, Ben Kaun, the Program Manager for the Energy Storage and Distributed Generation Program for EPRI, will offer an overview of future engagement opportunities for interested attendees in the EPRI Energy Storage Integration Council (ESIC).
