Our key speaker is 2019 Nobel laureate in chemistry, Dr Stanley Whittingham, who is currently working as a professor of chemistry in Binghamton University, State University of New York.
The energy storage sector has come a long way in the past decade and is seen as an enabler for transformation towards greener grids and cleaner transportation.
The development of this sector is the result of the hard work and passion of all stakeholders around the globe. To celebrate the growing importance of energy storage, the Global Energy Storage Alliance has been celebrating 22 September as World Energy Storage Day (WESD) since 2017.
Over the past three years, the IESA and its partners celebrated WESD with various national-level events to spread the word within each region.
This year, based on inputs from many of the partners, we are proud to announce that the virtual WESD Global Conclave & Expo on 22 September will be held online across seven regions.
This will be the first time that a marathon online event, dedicated to the energy storage and EV industry, has been organised on this scale and has only been possible with your constant support.
The event will bring together 75-plus global thought leaders and policymakers to share insights on the policy, technology, and business landscape in each of the seven global regions. We are targeting participation of more than 20,000 global delegates in this online event.
We are also pleased to share that we have received support of global alliances and organisations. They include: the Alliance for Rural Electrification, the Australian Energy Storage Alliance, Australia Trade & Invest, the Government of Australia, the German Association of Energy Storage Systems, California Energy Storage Alliance, China Energy Storage Alliance, the US Clean Energy States Alliance, Department of Science and Technology, Desert Energy Alliance, the US Energy Storage Association, European Alliance for Storage of Energy, European Battery Alliance (EBA250), Green Hydrogen Coalition, Indo German Energy Forum, Innovation Norway, International Solar Alliance, Irish Energy Storage Alliance, NITI Aayog, Government of India, South Africa Energy Storage Association, UL, BASF, Keysight Technologies, Exicom, Okaya and 30-plus global partners through the World Bank and partner organisation, the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program.
