Energy Storage STUDIO Call for Papers

Submission deadine is July 31, 11:59 p.m. ET

The Energy Storage STUDIO Conference is now accepting proposals!

The event will feature guest speakers and panel discussions; however, the focus of the conference will be facilitated poster presentations. While conference organizers may ask a submitter to appear on a panel discussion, this call for submissions will only gather abstracts for poster presentations not individual presentations or panel discussions.

Each Energy Storage STUDIO session (approx. 2 hours) will consistent of three parts:

  • Educational presentation or panel discussion from guest speakers
  • Short topic introductions by poster presenters
  • Facilitated poster session, which includes in-depth, intimate discussion and networking

Session Topics

All submitters must choose one primary session topic. Submitters may also choose a secondary topic. Submissions that do not specify a session topic will not be considered for review. 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
  • Minimizing total cost of ownership
  • Software or novel methodologies for utility planning and operating of storage to maximize system benefits
  • Quantification of greenhouse gas emissions impacts

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:

  • Customer microgrids
  • 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

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 and commissioning
  • Protection design and testing
  • Safety and Codes, Standards, and Regulations (CSRs)
  • Utility communication and control integration

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
  • Low cost technologies
  • Failure modes, safety, and degradation
  • Power conversion system advancements
  • Battery and system management software
  • Thermal management systems
  • Containerization and packaging
