If you have questions about your proposal, please contact Sonora Munks.

The Energy Storage STUDIO Conference will feature invited guest speakers, and interactive poster presentations. Most of the content during this conference will be in poster format. This call for submissions will only gather submissions for poster presentations; however, all submissions will be considered for other speaking roles. 

Each Energy Storage STUDIO session will be two hours long and centered around a specific theme. Each session will have three parts:

  • Invited guest speaker presentations
  • Rapid-fire topic introductions by poster presenters
  • Poster session, which includes in-depth, intimate discussion and networking

Session Topics

All submitters must choose a session topic. Incomplete submissions will not be considered for review.

Session Topic 1: Modeling and Analysis of Energy Storage Value and Grid Impacts

This session will cover the motivation and quantification of benefits and costs for energy storage. It will especially focus on the incorporation of storage valuation into the planning and operations of electric utilities and system operators.

Example topics for this session may include, but are not limited to:

  • Analyses of storage value with grid modeling
  • Quantification of storage capacity contribution
  • Demonstrations or pilots with data on storage value
  • Software or novel methodologies for utility planning and operating of storage to maximize system benefits and/or reduce total cost of ownership
  • Quantification of greenhouse gas emissions impacts
  • Modeling of market sensitivities (e.g. gas prices/availability, participation rules) and impact on potential storage penetration

Session Topic 2: Deployment and Field Experience – Customer Sited

This session will cover a variety of topics related to storage located at residential or C&I customers. It will examine approaches to safe, reliable and valuable solutions that may benefit customers, utilities and society.

Example topics for this session may include, but are not limited to:

  • Microgrids for customers, rural communities, islands, etc.
  • Storage integrating with other distributed resources: solar, DR, electric vehicles
  • Advanced demand response programs and technologies
  • Wholesale market participation with customer-sited storage
  • Ownership structures for utility usage of customer-sited storage
  • Safety measures and implications of new and emerging codes and standards
  • Incorporating energy storage into disaster resiliency strategies

Session Topic 3: Deployment and Field Experience – Utility Integration

This session will cover a variety of topics related to electric utility-led efforts to deploy and integrate energy storage systems that are safe, reliable and cost-effective.

  • Example topics for this session may include, but are not limited to:
  • Utility case studies
  • Technical-related procurement lessons learned
  • Installation, commissioning, recommissioning, and decommissioning
  • Measurement and verification design Safety and Codes, Standards, and Regulations (CSRs)
  • Utility communication, control, and cybersecurity integration
  • Incorporating energy storage into disaster resiliency strategies

Session Topic 4: Advancements in Energy Storage System Technologies

This session will cover advancements made in energy storage system technology including component research and complementary technologies that may facilitate improved system performance, safety, reliability or cost. Technologies with demonstrable technical maturity with test data are preferred.

Example topics for this session may include, but are not limited to:

  • Lab data and test results
  • Technologies with improved energy density
  • Failure modes, safety, and degradation
  • Power conversion system advancements, including DC/DC converters
  • Battery and system management software
  • Thermal management systems
  • Containerization and packaging
  • Non-battery technologies and key performance, reliability, and safety attributes
