Dates & Venue

Mon and Tue, 22 and 23 October 2018. Emperors Palace, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Welcome to SA Energy Storage, SSEG & Smart Grid 2018

With a concurrent seminar on Small Scale Embedded Generation (SSEG) on 23 October 2018

A focused conference and exhibition covering policy, regulatory, economic, social, research, technology, business, standards, safety, financing, application and maintenance issues associated with Energy Storage, Small Scale Embedded Generation (SSEG), Renewable Energy and Smart Grid in domestic, commercial, industrial, utility, mini/micro-grid and electric vehicle applications. 

with the theme:

“Taking energy storage, renewable energy and smart grid forward in Africa: from research, piloting, policy and regulation, to standards, safety, financial closure and projects.”

encompassing:

  • New and emerging battery storage, small scale embedded generation, renewable energy and smart grid technologies, products, systems and solutions
  • Innovative policy and regulatory frameworks to attract investments and new projects
  • Energy storage for arbitrage, capex deferment, frequency regulation and grid anxciliary services
  • Generating revenue and profit streams from the multiple benefits of energy storage, small scale embedded generation, renewable energy and smart grid
  • Demonstrating the business case for energy storage, small scale embedded generation, renewable energy and smart-grid projects
  • Energy storage, small scale embedded generation, and renewable energy for housing, campus, industrial and business parks and micro-grids
  • Energy storage, small scale embedded generation and renewable energy for mini- and micro-grids in remote and rural areas in Africa
  • New business models for municipalities and electricity utilities of the future
  • Business models for behind-the-meter energy storage, small scale embedded generation and renewable energy solutions
  • Calculation of multiple revenue streams to ensure bankability of energy storage, small scale embedded generation, renewable energy and smart grid projects
  • Increasing the reliability, sustainability and performance of energy storage, small scale embedded generation, renewable energy and smart grid systems
  • Maintenance, safety and standards for energy storage, small scale embedded generation, renewable energy and smart grid components and systems
