Energy Storage Europe: multi technology and intelligent
system design hold the key to the future

World's largest energy storage conference is growing by more than 40 percent

Anil Srivastava, CEO of Leclanché and keynote speaker at Energy Storage, calls for a shift in focus in the energy storage debate


While the future of energy storage lies in a multiple-technology approach that consolidates the strengths of different storage options into hybrid systems, the current energy storage debate is focusing too heavily on the advantages and disadvantages of individual storage technologies. This hypothesis will form the central argument of the keynote speech to be delivered by Anil Srivastava, CEO of Leclanché, at the Energy Storage Europe Conference held in Düsseldorf, Germany, from March 9–11.

“Different storage applications often require different capabilities. While some areas of application need high output and quick reaction, others demand inexpensive storage technologies with a high capacity. Frequently these various features need to be combined seamlessly with each other,” explains Anil Srivastava. “These days, many people are on the lookout for a kind of miracle system that fulfills all their requirements equally as well. Until such a concept exists, batteries, for example, will continue to be used in devices to which they are not ideally suited and oversized storage systems or a reduced service life will continue to be endured. During my more than 20 years’ experience of working in the energy industry, I have never come across any miracle technology. This is why I am convinced that we should no longer invest merely in making certain types of storage devices stand out from their competitors. Instead, we would achieve more by using smart software to integrate the strengths of different storage technologies seamlessly into hybrid systems. This applies to both stationary applications and e-mobility.”

About Energy Storage
Energy Storage Europe 2015 will bring together five international energy-related conferences and one exhibition under one roof. The event, which will take place March 9 to 11, 2015, in Düsseldorf, Germany, will combine Energy Storage Europe, the 9th International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES 2015), the 2nd VDE Financial Dialogue Europe 2015, the 4th OTTI Power-to-Gas Conference, and the German Solar Alliance’s 6th Storage Day. Together, these annual conferences will cover the widest topical range in the international energy storage market.

More than 1,500 international visitors are expected and almost 100 exhibitors to participate in the trade show, which will take place in conjunction with the conferences.
