Date: 23rd September 2017

Exclusive for IESA Members

With our association with Global Energy Storage Alliances, we are planning to announce 23rd September as World Energy Storage Day. Why 23rd September? The sun – the largest source of natural energy – has held much importance through the ages and people have gathered throughout time to worship the sun during the days of solstice and equinox with special rituals. The Autumnal equinox occurs on 23rd September and the day and night are of approximately equal duration all over the planet i.e. the day is balanced. Interestingly the Sun enters astrological sign Libra at the autum equinox, which is the sign of Scale & Balance. Energy storage is playing a critical role in grid balancing with growing renewable energy penetration, power supply-demand management and frequency regulation. To acknowledge the balancing effects of Energy Storage, 23rd September was chosen as an apt date for the World Energy Storage Day.

 On this first World Energy Storage Day, 23rd September 2017, IESA is arranging Energy Storage Policy Forum to have dialogue between industry & policy makers to understand the Energy policy scenario & future outlook in India. Energy storage plays an important role into Renewable Integration, Microgrids, Electric Mobility, Smart Grid Smart Cities initiatives by the Government of India. Indian energy storage sector is becoming interesting with 46 MW+ large scale projects announced in 2016 and 56 MWh+ of projects announced this year till date. We would like the group of key people from regulatory bodies, ministries & companies active in this sector to discuss ground level realities, status & issues of different energy storage projects in India. Your presence & valuable insights will greatly help the sector to boost their morale & confidence at this time.

 On the same day, we are also launching Global Energy Storage Index to track the energy storage industries across the globe including USA, China, Japan, South Korea, Switzerland, India and Canada etc. The index has a good representation of various energy storage technologies like, Lead Acid, Li-Ion, Ultra Capacitors, Nickel based batteries and other emerging technologies. Please have a fist peek at the site: which we are further improving.
