Dates & Venue

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

Call for sponsors, exhibitors and papers

The SA Energy Storage conference and exhibition is calling for sponsors, presenters, and exhibitors. The event will deal with policy, regulatory, economic, technology, business and application issues associated with energy storage, both as a disrupting and an enabling technology.

Call for papers

The closing date for abstracts and paper submissions is 30 September 2017, for more information on where and how to submit, click here.

Call for exhibitors

Call for sponsors

There are four main sponsorship packages available which offer unprecedented value to four, leading, far-sighted energy storage solution providers. Click here for more information.


The target audience for the conference and exhibition includes business leaders, managers, engineers, scientists, project managers and decision-makers from all sectors of the economy, within government, government agencies, regulators and standards bodies; academia, research, education and training institutions; electricity utilities, municipalities and electricity distributors; consultants, engineering managers, engineers, technologists, technicians and artisans; developers, technology providers, project companies and system integrators of energy storage and associated systems; the renewable energy sector in its widest context; manufacturers and suppliers of energy storage and associated systems, subsystems and components; electrical and mechanical contractors and installers of energy storage and associated systems; and end-users of energy storage and associated systems.

The conference and exhibition will have four sub-themes to offer delegates and thus extend our call for papers covering the following four topics:

  1. Utility scale energy storage technologies and applications
  2. Energy storage for commercial and industrial applications
  3. Energy storage for micro-grids and domestic applications
  4. Energy storage for electric vehicles

Topics within the sub-themes will focus on leading-edge energy storage technologies, solutions, and applications including:

  • Utility scale battery energy storage
  • Utility scale pumped water energy storage
  • Utility scale railway based potential energy storage
  • Energy storage for industrial, commercial and domestic applications
  • Energy storage for electric vehicles
  • Energy storage for micro-grids and smart grids
  • Fuel cell energy storage and applications
  • Energy storage for remote power supplies for telecoms and other applications
  • Hydrogen energy storage
  • Integration of energy storage with other flexible generation sources (like power from gas), to complement variable energy renewable energy (wind, solar) generation
  • Energy storage for synthetic inertia, power quality, voltage and frequency control
  • UPS and other standby power supply applications
  • Energy storage for consumer electronic products
  • Energy harvesting and storage
