World Energy Storage Day brings stakeholders on single platform
Commemorating the 4th World Energy Storage Day 2020, IESA on September 22, held marathon, all day-long sessions deliberating on the future of energy storage, and called upon all stakeholders in India and globally, to strive to build an enabling ecosystem.
On the occasion of WESD 2020, IESA brought together industry leaders, policymakers, academia, researchers, and energy storage professionals from India and across the world on a single platform by organizing the first ever, virtual World Energy Storage Day Global Conference and Expo.
Over 2,500+ delegates and 10,000+ participants from 60+ countries engaged in insightful discussions at the conference, deliberating on policy and government initiatives for stationary energy storage, e-mobility, innovations, and latest developments in these sectors worldwide.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his letter to IESA said, "I am pleased to learn that IESA and its partners are holding a digital World Energy Storage Day Conclave and Expo. Energy security and sufficiency are pivotal for selfreliant India. We are constantly striving to ensure that electricity reaches everyone, there is sufficient electricity for everyone, and that our environment remains clean.
We are also making sure that our resolve towards clean and renewable energy is taken care of in every aspect of life. For energy access and energy sustainability, we are focused towards building a robust storage capability in the country. Efforts like global conclave and expo strengthen this vision. The presence of policy makers, technical experts and other participants from various countries reflects mankind's commitment to sustainable development."
M. Stanley Whittingham, 2019 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, during his keynote address at the event said: "Lithium-ion batteries are already changing the way we store our future energy. The future is bright for storage and Li-ion batteries are raring to go.
M. Stanley Whittingham, 2019 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, during his keynote address at the event said: "Lithium-ion batteries are already changing the way we store our future energy. The future is bright for storage and Li-ion batteries are raring to go. Clearly, the battery is not only the medium, hydrogen, pumped hydro and supercapacitors will also be some active contenders for future energy storage requirements. Let's make 2020 the decade of energy storage."
Speaking at the virtual conference, Dr. Rahul Walawalkar, Founder and President of IESA, said, '"The world is at the cusp of a 21st century industrial revolution. Energy storage will be at the epicentre of this revolution. The discussions and insights here have set the tone for many strategic interventions across the world towards building a global ecosystem for energy storage in the power and transportation sector. The event emerged as catalyst towards highlighting the potential of energy storage for future businesses and sustainable living."
Following are key ideas and insights shared during the global conference.
Present at this session were various government bodies as well as policy and research organizations, who came together to deliberate on present state of initiatives and policy framework, the barriers to energy storage adoption and the opportunities within the sector. The speakers deliberated on the changes that will shape the future policy initiatives.
