SA Energy Storage 2017 conference presentations and papers

December 6th, 2017, Published in Articles: EE Publishers, Articles: Energize

Energy storage is globally considered the new wave in the energy sector following on from, and supporting, recent developments in renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. To support this technological development, EE Publishers hosted the SA Energy Storage 2017 conference and exhibition at Emperors Palace in November 2017. This focussed conference and exhibition covered policy, regulatory, economic, research, technology, business and application issues associated with energy storage, both as a disrupting and an enabling technology.
